You might simply need to add _-. to WordCharacters.
See WORDCHARS definition in swish-e/src/config.h if the below
WordCharacters line is scrambled in my email (and ignore the line

Try this config and see what happens:

% cat swish-default.conf
# include the PUBNUMBER meta value for each file

# save the PUBNUMBER in the index so its search-able
PropertyNames PUBNUMBER

# minimum word length
MinWordLimit 3

# Valid characters found in "words"
