"not" behaviour non-intuitive...

From: Greg Fenton <greg_fenton(at)>
Date: Tue Oct 22 2002 - 20:32:30 GMT
Using swish-e 2.2.2 and querying using swish.cgi:

#1. I do a search for "xxxxx":               5 results.
#2. I do a search for "not xxxxx":         464 results.
#3. I do a search for "asadfasdfasdf":       0 results.
#4. I do a search for "not asadfasdfasdf": 464 results.

[Note: above searched done without the quotes].

I understand results #1, 3, and 4, but I don't understand #2.
Can anyone offer insight to what option(s) might be causing such
