Description (last modified by Arvid Halma)

I would expect that the iexact filter for querying models only results in string matches that possibly differ in case, however, it also matches prefixes...

MyModel.objects.filter(name__iexact='king').all()
[<MyModel: KING>, <MyModel: King of Spain>, <MyModel: King of Holland>]

This looks more like icontains to me... I expected only [<MyModel: KING>]
