This all sounds familiar.  Like a bug that might have been fixed months ago
in the dev version.

Yes, upgrade. ;)

2.0.5 is over a year behind in development and bug fixes.  Use 2.1-dev and
don't use merge.

How is make test failing in 2.1?

There's a lot on spidering with 2.1 in the archives, too.  Install libxml2
if you can, as it's a much better parser than swish-e's internal parser.
See INSTALL doc for details.

Come back if you have any questions at all.
