Just amazing that you are the first to catch this!

In http.c you will find the line:

     fprop->index_no_content = strncmp(contenttype, "text/", 5);

Clearly, that doesn't work with filters.  Remove or comment out that line
and recompile.

As always, I'd recommend using 2.1-dev.  Faster indexing, you can run the
filter without a shell script, you can use -S prog instead of -S
httpd for more control over spidering and filtering, and so on....
