Seems it is broken as designed, if I understand what you mean.

When "foobar" gets broken and displayed like |
  +bar                                        |

I can search for "foo" and "bar" and both get found as expected.
If that didn't work, some detail would have to be fixed.

If you want "foobar" to be found in that situation, you have to
extend the search mechanism.  Not a small fix.

Or don't break lines like that, restore the old lynx behavior.
