SWISH-E: indexing and -t switch

Mark -

I have successfully re-compiled swish-e.1.2.4 on Best.com (was using 1.1)
and indexed a major section of our web site.  Unfortunately, I am getting
unexpected results from a query on the index.  Specifically, when I append
the '-t Bthe' switch to my ./swish-e command I don't get all the results
that I would expect.

shell5: {%108} pwd
/webadmin/home/web2/monkeym/public_html/TX1/search/swish
shell5: {%109} ./swish -w milk -f source.swish
# SWISH format 1.2
# Swish-e format 1.2

The word 'milk' is used at the end of a paragraph in the body of the .html
file.  The file in question
is: 

http://www.monkey.com/TX1/profile/people/people.htm

Can someone please tell me why the a query on the index with the -t switch
is not returning this file?  Help!
