[sword-devel] indexed search discrepancy

We've had a bug reported against Xiphos, here
Essentially the reporter is getting different results doing an indexed
search in BibleTime and Xiphos, in the JFB module, for the word "oil".
Now of course, BT implements its own indexing, and I believe they
index headers, footnotes and maybe other stuff, so I thought that
might explain this a little. However, this module has no headers or
footnotes that I can see, and Xiphos is clearly missing some valid
search results. So I compiled sword/examples/cmdline/search to use
lucene search, and I got the same results. Strangely, though, I just
tried Xiphos on Windows and I got 120 results.

Windows is 32 bit, SWORD 1.6.0. Linux is Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit. Both are
using the same module version. In both, I created the indexes from
Xiphos. (OK, just to double-check I created the index with mkfastmod
and got the same results)

Any idea why this is happening?
