[swish-e] Search result problems

Hi, I'm working on a Swish-e setup which has a couple of significant problems
with search results and am hoping to get some advice or wisdom on diagnosing or
fixing them.

1) Searches are not returning the main result where the keyword is a title of
a document in the index. The titled document itself doesn't appear in
the search result.

2) The "Did you mean" feature mostly suggests useless alternatives,
often not even actual words.

We're using  Swish-e 2.4.5

Here's the uname -a output:

Linux 2.6.18-53.el5 #1 SMP Wed Oct 10 16:34:02 EDT
2007 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

And these are the .conf files for search/indexing.  Any advice or suggestion is
greatly appreciated.  The "..." portions of paths have replaced the
actual name for disclosure reasons.
