Searching for "Trieste" returns correctly all records containing Trieste in their name

Searching for "Trieste " returns a plethora of institutions mainly not even containing Trieste in their name.

Find screenshots attached.

This is worsen by the Android completion suggestion of "trie" in "Trieste " with the whitespace that gets tapped by our users.

Ah, this is a bug. The app takes the empty string as a search term, and of course every institution has the empty string as a substring.

The fix for this is relatively easy, but it would also require us to make a new release, which is currently difficult for Android due to API deprecations..
