Oh!  Ewh!  That could very well be a problem.

Look for a line in search.conf that says this:
  $intGetFileData = 1;
Change it to:
  $intGetFileData = 0;

See if that helps.  I bet it does.  Note the comment right above
$intGetFileData in search.conf that says "may impact speed"  ;-)

Do you need meta properties support?  If so I'll make a beta version of
1.x available.  It breaks some obscure features but it does provide
decent SWISH-E meta properties support.

Simple Web Search was written for SWISH-E 1.2 which didn't support meta
properties.  So, I hacked it by using PHP's built-in HTML metadata
parser.  Really really ugly and terribly bad if you have non-HTML files
in the mix.

The plan is to rewrite SWS for Jose's native PHP module.  (And to
implement a fallback to the swish-e executable.)
