There's two places to do that.  In your spider config file you can tell
it to strip them when extracting links from the document in a test_url()
callback function.  Or, you can use a filter_content() and modify the
url before the document is sent to swish for indexing.

I suspect you can also use "ReplaceRules" in your swish-e config file.

Maybe you needed to add it to the call to pdfinfo, too.

Test from the command line to make sure it works with pdfinfo and
pdftext, first.
