I did search the archives, but couldn't find any pointers to a solution.

I have indexed a web site using the file system method, and created an 
index file.  If I test that index by doing:

$ swish-e -D search.swish | grep "finger"
finger: 17 4 1 1 23 8 1 1 65 8 9 1 86 4 9 1 448 3 9 1 449 4 9 1 450 4 9 1 
451 4 9 1 452 4 9 1 453 4 9 1 454 3 9 1 455 4 9 1 456 4 9 1 457 4 9 1 458 4 
9 1 459 4 9 1 460 4 9 1 461 3 9 1 462 5 9 1 463 4 9 1 464 4 9 1 465 4 9 1 
466 2 9 1 467 2 9 1 468 4 9 1 469 3 9 1 470 3 9 1 471 3 9 1 472 4 9 1 473 3 
9 1 474 3 9 1 475 4 9 1 476 4 9 1 477 4 9 1 478 2 9 1 479 2 9 1 480 4 9 1 
481 4 9 1

so obviously the word's in there.  but if I run a normal query, I get the 
below:

$ swish-e -f search.swish -w "finger"
# SWISH format 1.3
# Swish-e format 1.3
#
# Name: Climbing Boulder
# Saved as: search.swish
# Counts: 152228800 words, 719 files
# Indexed on: 11/04/01 14:00:51 MDT
# Description: This is an index for climbingboulder.com
# Pointer: http://www.climbingboulder.com
# Maintained by: Myke Komarnitsky (myke@komar.org
# DocumentProperties: Enabled
# Stemming Applied: 152228848
# Search words: finger
err: no results
..

what's especially odd is the line telling saying 150,000,000 words and 719 
files. the file number is right, but there is DEFINITELY not anywhere close 
to that many words.  any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
