Abbreviations for concatenated words is not working properly for Swedish

In Swedish it is common to concatenate words into one longer word. One example is the street name "Kungsgatan", formed by the words "kungs" and "gatan". The correct abbreviation for "Kungsgatan" is "Kungsg.". Searching for kungsg in Nominatim yeilds no result since the rewrite for abbreviation for gatan separates the two words into "kungs g". Searching for "kungs g " works fine but is plain wrong in Swedish.
