RE: duplicate entries in DB after regex performed on URLs?

Well, commenting out those lines in swish.conf works.  How this is
related to cookies or exactly why it's causing the PDFs to break, I
don't really know .. converting the text to PDF and then the
config file tries to do it again?  The inner workings of it are beyond
me, so I'll stop hypothesizing.

Thanks for your help.. glad things are indexing as they should be now.

IndexOnly has no effect here.

The spider should tell swish what type the content is, so
IndexContents should not be needed.

It will take a few hours before I can look at the "cookie" issue.
