Oops.  Sorry about that.  But still there seem to be real errors.  The
first query[1] should match messages containing both "Saúde" and "Geap"
(sans the double quotes) in the subject, but does not.

1: 'subject:("Saúde" "Geap") OR subject:xplitz'

Also note that the fourth query[2] should have AND as the implicit
boolean operator, because 'subject:' is not a boolean prefix.  You
explained in the other thread the implicit OR operator only applies for
search terms with the same /boolean/ prefix.

2: 'subject:"Saúde" subject:"Geap"'
