Dear group,

I'm using surfraw version 2.2.7 in debian testing and there seems to
be a bug in the arxiv elvi.  When used with "scope=author" it
prepends an underscore in front of author's name and the search
doesn't work.

I looked at the script and although I don't completely understand
it, it seems that if one replaces line 92 (terms=$last"_"$first)

 terms=$last" "$first

the problem dissappears.
