Yes, title words get indexed as swishdefault metaname with the TITLE 
flag set:

moseley@bumby:~$ cat 1.html

moseley@bumby:~$ cat c
metanames swishtitle

moseley@bumby:~$ swish-e -i 1.html -c c -T indexed_words -v0
    Adding:[1:swishdefault(1)]   'title'   Pos:2  Stuct:0x7 ( HEAD TITLE FILE )
    Adding:[1:swishtitle(10)]   'title'   Pos:2  Stuct:0x7 ( HEAD TITLE FILE )
    Adding:[1:swishdefault(1)]   'body'   Pos:5  Stuct:0x9 ( BODY FILE )

The trick is to find the single document where it's not working and then 
index that by itself and narrow down the document and the config until 
you see where it's breaking.

But you are not using your config file there.  If you specify the config 
file does it still work?

So if you index the document by itself it works but as part of the full 
indexing it doesn't?

I'd do the brute force method of just writing all of's output to a file, index that and confirm that it
doesn't work.  Then just divide up that large file until I find the 
reason why it's not working.
