Problems indexing Metatags with numbers

Hi Swish-Ers...

Got a funny one here...

We've got a relatively large index (~30,000 docs) and each file has a 
line in it similar to:
	<META NAME="show" CONTENT="20/20">

No matter what I do:

If I formulate a search request with swish like:
	swish -w "show=20/20" -f index.swish -p show

I always get 0 results...

Now we have other documents with different show names (e.g. World 
News Tonight, Nightline, etc...) that all seem to work fine with the 
search... It's only the 20/20's that it can never find...

I know that I have things configured correctly in the user.config 
file and the config.h file since I can find other shows... but this 
is puzzling...

Is this a known problem?  Anyone heard of this, or have a work around?

I'm pulling out my hair here!

Thanks!

Cya...
Mike...
