Hi William,

this is a bug! The documentation was lying, the code didn't support
setting false as a stopper.

I've fixed the code now and made a new release of XapianFu, version
1.1.1.  You can grab it from github:


or wait until I'm done fighting with gem cutter and it'll be in the gem

Thanks for the bug report!
