Problem with FS method.

I'm in the process of installing a new server here and thought I'd take the 
opportunity to upgrade the version of swish-e that I run.

I was on 1.3 and everything worked fine (albeit slowly, because I was using 
the http method).  I grabbed 1.3.2 and decided to switch to the FS method 
but it doesn't seem to find any links in my main page.

The config file looks like

IndexDir /usr/local/apache/htdocs/index.html
IndexFile /usr/local/swishe/index.swishe
IndexName "Bigelow Index"
IndexDescription "This is the index of our site."
IndexPointer ""
IndexAdmin "Bruce Bowler ("
NoContents .gif .mov .jpg .mpg .tiff .zip .hqx
IndexReport 3
FollowSymLinks yes
IgnoreLimit 50 1000
IgnoreWords SwishDefault
IndexComments 0
FileRules directory contains .htaccess
FileRules filename contains # % ~ .bak .orig .old old.

and I'm using the command ./swish-e -c /usr/local/swishe/swishe.config to 
fire the whole thing off.  what I get back is

Indexing Data Source: "File-System"

Checking file "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/index.html"...
   index.html (133 words)

Removing very common words... no words removed.
Writing main index... 101 unique words indexed.
Writing file index... 1 file indexed.
Running time: 1 second.
Indexing done!

There are plenty of links on the page in question (feel free to see for 
yourselves).  Any ideas?
