incomplete results compared to meta seach?

hi,

i have about 50,000 documents indexed and am behavior where a search 
for a term against the index is returning much less results that a 
search against a meta index. does the following make sense? i would 
expect a general search for a unique word like "saignon" to find all 12 
matches. is this just an issue of my tuning swish-e?
