Can I recommend that you get into rank.c and add a few printf()
statements?  My guess is that will be the fastest way to see why
things are not working like you expect.

Print out what "meta_bias" is, and how it's changing the
word_score.  rank.c is scaling the raw word_socre after applying the
rank_bias, which is basically taking the log() of the raw score.  It
might be that the bias is not significant enough to have an effect.
