[CWB] Spanish TreeTagger

Sorry for posting a question not concerning CQP in the first place but the TreeTagger for Spanish texts:

Using the script „tree-tagger-spanish“ a list of multiword expressions is included in the tagging procedure, e.g. printing 

> Por el contrario	ADV	por~el~contrario

For CQPweb has problems with this and displays it as "[UNREADABLE] [UNREADABLE] contrario“ I wonder if I should to a normal tokenizing. However, I am not sure whether users familiar with tagged Spanish texts will expect „por el contrario“ as a multiword token (for my part, I don’t speak Spanish).

Or is this a bug of my CQPweb v3.2.27?

Best, Simon
