[bioontology-support] REST includeproperties setting in search

Hi Tomasz,

This behavior is correct. The Lucene index is set by default to  
collect the top 1,000 hits. Before returning the result set to the  
user via the Web service, the duplicates are removed. Therefore, there  
can be more duplicate results in the Lucene index result set when  
including properties in the search since there are more chances to  
have a good match from the search term to either the term name,  
synonym or any other property that the ontology term has.  The maximum  
number of hits parameter can be adjusted as documented here:
