There is one other detail that should clarify the situation. At query time,
the query parser itself is breaking your query into space-delimited terms,
and only calling the analyzer for each of those terms, each of which will be
treated as if a quoted phrase. So it doesn't matter whether it is the
standard analyzer or word delimiter filter or other filter that is breaking
up the compound term.
And the default "query operator" only applies to the "terms" as the query
parser parsed them, not for the sub-terms of a compound term like CD-ROM or
