And you are using -e?

Have you tried a newer version of swish?  I think commas were added into
the display of those numbers in December.  I can't think of anything
specific that changed.

Your files are not very large, but you have a lot of unique words
indexed.  I wonder if that's why the problem is showing up with you and
not others.

Do you have a Linux machine handy?  It would be helpful to see if you
have the same problem on that platform.  Plus, it's a lot easier to test
and debug when you have the source available.
