Strange indexing of word documents

Hi again all

I received help getting catdoc to work and all seems well..or so i 
thought. I'm not getting any error messages but I have noted the 
certain word documents are not being indexed. I have one test document 
which simply contains the word Dog and Computer but when I search for 
"Dog" I recieve no hits event though the document contains that word. 
If i search on document path and give the file name swish-e finds the 
file. It looks like its being indexed but if thats the case why am I 
not receiving any hits?

This is my conf file

IndexDir /usr/local/arkiv/
IndexOnly .doc .txt .rtf
IndexContents TXT .txt .doc .rtf
StoreDescription HTML <body> 200000
StoreDescription TXT 10000
MetaNames swishdocpath swishtitle
FileFilter .doc /usr/bin/catdoc "-s8859-1 -d8859-1 '%p'"
ReplaceRules remove /usr/local/arkiv/

and my .swishcgi.conf file

return {

         title => 'Dokument Arkiv',
         swish_binary => '/usr/local/bin/swish-e',
         swish_index => '/home/admin/swishindex/index.swish-e',
         prepend_path => '/arkiv/'
