Problems with keyword search

I recently downloaded and compiled swish-e on a Sun SuperSPARCstation20 
running Sun Solaris 2.5.1.  Everything seems to work fine except that the 
keyword search is not returning accurate results.  For example, if I have 
a meta tag such as:

<META name="topic" content="blue, green, white, orange, purple">

A keyword search will return a positive result when the values are 
searched individually, but not when more than one value is searched--i.e. 
positive results when searching for "blue" but not "blue green" or "blue 
purple white"

I have also used AutoSwish to generate the .conf file with similar 
results.  Likewise, I have tried indexing different sets of files with 
different keywords; results are similar in each case.  

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
