OK, so it's the other variant you need to explicitly try.

What you are saying is otherwise wrong.

That's because they cut off the number of differences at a very small number.

So if you use just one variant, many of those few will be eaten up by just 16093,
which is uninteresting to you. If you try both variants of 16093, you will get
a larger total number of non-exact matches.
