Spidering "file://" PDFs

Hi All:

I'm new to swish-e (about 3 weeks experience).  I have the package running
more or less successfully on a Linux box indexing some IIS pages.  Very
powerful, and my colleagues love it!

I have created a web page that has several references to PDF documents via
URLs that look like:

<a href="file://">  ...  </a>

I note that does not appear to be reading and indexing these

I can think of workarounds to get the URL into an http: context, but it
would be simpler if there is a way to get this to work with file:// URLs.

Someone must have asked/answered this before, but I could not find anything
in the docs or the FAQ.

Help appreciated,
