If the search terms were not found in swishdescription, then there is nothing to 
be highlighted, and only the first N characters are shown in the output. So yes, 
it does sound related.

You might try increasing the size of your StoreDescription config param. Swish-e 
is probably just not storing enough in the .prop file in order to show you the 
contextual match.
