-x option broken in 2.1-dev-24-2001-11-27 ? SymbianUK05/Symbian(Release 5.0.8 |June 18, 2001) at 11/29/2001 09:11:15 AM, Serialize complete at 11/29/2001 09:11:15 AM

I'm trying to use the swish.cgi script with additional property names. 
 However, the additional properties always display as "NULL", so I set 
about trying the swish-e command directly to check if the right info is 
being fed in.

If I run:

swish-e -p "DocumentSource" -p "DatabaseName" -c 
./swish/swish-e-2.1-dev-24/prog-bin/notes.conf -w alan
I get the returned matches including the DocumentSource and DatabaseName 
properties (both defined in notes.conf).
However, if I run:

swish-e -c ../swish/swish-e-2.1-dev-24/prog-bin/notes.conf -x 
"<DocumentSource>\t<DatabaseName>" -w alan

I simply get (NULL) (NULL) returned as the search result.  From my 
reading of the docs, this should return the same two strings and were 
returned in the first version.

Here's the relevant bits of the conf file:

# Swish config file
# Fetching options
IndexDir ./

# Indexing options
StoreDescription  HTML  <body> 1000
DefaultContents  HTML
PropCompressionLevel 9
MinWordLimit 3
UseStemming yes
IndexReport 2

# Some meta information fields
MetaNames DocumentSource ParentView DatabaseName
PropertyNames DocumentSource ParentView DatabaseName

Am I doing something wrong, or is there a bug in the handling of 
non-built in properties?
