FTS indexes pass c-strings to tokenizer so they ignore data in strings past the first nul byte

      "Luckily" the same bug exists in both indexing and querying. Unfortunately, because it is in indexing, it will require a version bump to fix and we would need to keep the old code around.


      This also adds a relatively slight overhead because it is computing strlen rather than just using the size stored in the BSONElement. But that cost is trivial relative to the actual tokenization, so I don't think it is a good motivation alone to fix this.
