locate "stest" |grep ^stest$

remarkably returns null, else I screwed-up my grep test. However, there were
many numerous hits with embedded stest within text strings.

Far less common was lstest as locate simply returned two hits from mtools:

locate "lstest"

lstest seems to have more meaning from a user perspective. stest seems to be
something for testing for strings within a text file vs. ls being commonly used
for list directory files.
