the problem is in, not the swish-e command line tool. You'll want to
turn on the verbose/debugging options in to see which file is causing
the problem. Often the issue is with mismatched encodings and setting the
correct document length in the headers that are fed to swish-e. So if you are
seeing this error with a particular file, it is often the file parsed just
*before* it that is actually the problem, where it is claiming to be N bytes
long but is in fact M bytes long.
