Ah, ok.  The problem is the default sort key length in that version was 
50 characters.  It's now set at 100 chars.

I suppose there should be a way to set that at run time for those that 
don't build from source.

No, "R" comes before "a".

        swishdocpath : id= 6 type= 6  META_PROP:STRING(case:compare) *presorted*

There's an indexing directive that can change that.
