Inconsistent Results

Now that I have my search running (whew!) I have noticed some 
interesting anomalies.  Today I have run the indexer four times with the 
following results:

2,242 files indexed.  14,622,597 total bytes.  564,311 total words.
Elapsed time: 00:24:23 CPU time: 00:00:07
Indexing done!

2,207 files indexed.  14,527,530 total bytes.  561,917 total words.
Elapsed time: 00:28:01 CPU time: 00:00:07
Indexing done!

2,242 files indexed.  14,622,597 total bytes.  564,311 total words.
Elapsed time: 00:36:38 CPU time: 00:00:06
Indexing done!

2,214 files indexed.  14,555,299 total bytes.  562,548 total words.
Elapsed time: 00:17:36 CPU time: 00:00:07
Indexing done

Note several things: (a) the total words varies from 561,917 to 564,311; 
(b) the files indexed ranges from 2,207 to 2,242.  During this period 
the site was static.  I'm curious as to why the variation?  Is this a 
concern?
