That is strange. Perhaps when searching "oauth" "authorization" it is increasing the distance allowed between the words available for search.

At least "oauth authorization" seems to behave more normal.

It's not clear that it still works, but there's also the AROUND(n) operator.

  oauth AROUND(3) authorization
would reduce the set to results that include "oauth" and "authorization", in any order, separated at most by three words.

That would be amazing!

Where do you find the fnlist + manpage? Is it possible to search for "foo <at most 3 words> bar"? Aka "around(3), but order matters".
