I was asking for a complete example I could run on my machine.  If you
did that then I could show you exactly why it is is isn't working as
you expect.  It's faster that way.

Swish parses words and then places them in the index.  You can see
what words are placed in the index and under what metaname using:

    swish-e -T indexed_words <rest of options used to index>

Then when searching you can use

    swish-e -H9 -w foo

and look for "Parsed Words" and that will show the words swish is
using to search the index.
