Silly Logic problem w. Meta Tags

New Swish-E 2.0.5 user here, and very pleased with the program -- very easy
install, VERY fast indexing and searching.

But for the life of me I can't figure out how to get it to properly search
across multiple Meta tags.  I'm using the swich-cgi.pl listed on the
Downloads page.  I'm sure it's something stupid on my part, but any help
would be appreciated.

This query returns 1 record:

-w "Rose and ContentType=WOD"

This query returns 0 records:

-w "Rose and ContentType=(WOD or QOD)"

Same for this:

-w "ContentType=(WOD or QOD) and Rose"

Am I missing something?  I've looked at this page repeatedly, but can't
figure out what I'm doing wrong:

http://swish-e.org/Manual/searchhelp.html

What should the syntax look like to get it to do an OR search across
multiple MetaTags?

Thanks very much.
