I just tried it for a search that normally has several million pages returned, and this way returns about 35K. All have the exact phrase in the page title, no stemming.
Also, for another search that generally returns about 1 million there are 16K returned, again all with the exact phrase in the title.
What's interesting with the second is that a site that's normally not in the first 100 turns up at #5 this way. It seems to be over-riding whatever reason there is for the site not ranking for normal search, as does the -asdfg appear to do.
