with the crash fixed now, regarding the searching:

"Some caseless matches may match one character against two: for example,
U+00DF "ß" matches the two characters "SS". And case matching may vary
by locale. However, because many implementations are not set up to
handle this, at Level 1 only simple case matches are necessary. To
correctly implement a caseless match, see Chapter 3, Conformance of
[Unicode]. The data file supporting caseless matching is [CaseData]."


When I select `match case`, the search works as expected -- letting me
search for either "dass" or "daß".
