[swish-e] IndexOnly and NoContents, and indexing image files

Hi all,
If I've understood the documentation correctly, if we put ".gif" into 
both the IndexOnly and NoContents directives, the result should be that 
Swish-e will index the names of .gif files but not attempt to index 
their contents.

However, if we do that, we get a zillion warning messages saying that 
null characters have been been substituted with newlines in .gif files.  
This would seem to indicate that Swish-e is attempting (rather 
uselessly) to index the content of the .gif files.

Have I got something wrong, or is this expected behaviour?

Running Swish-e version 2.4.3, Debian-packaged.
Actual directives from config file:
> IndexOnly .html .htm .txt .cnt .gif .shm .xbm .au .mov .mpg  .doc .pdf
> NoContents .gif .xbm .au .mov .mpg
