Description:
Hi Team,

A system variable called "ft_max_word_len" in described in the documentation, but there is a mistake in the maximum value it can take.
The documentation states that the maximum value is "82" when it is actually "84", which can be seen from the source code. 

A similar bug:

Hi Mr. Metodiev,

Thank you very much for your bug report.

You are indeed correct, since 334 / 4 = 84.

Verified as reported.
