Is it possible that you were getting the extra .shtml/ stuff, but just
weren't detecting it in your searches, or are you sure they never came up?

Where does the word appear in these 19 extra documents? If it's in img
alt text, or immediately after a bare ampersand (&), that would explain
why htdig 3.1.3 or earlier failed to index that word in these documents.
If it appears elsewhere, I'd be very curious to know why htdig 3.1.3
missed it, and if it doesn't appear anywhere in the document or in
descriptions of hyperlinks to the documents, I'd like to know why htdig
3.1.4 is putting it in the index. Please look into this further, if you
can, and get back to me ASAP. We'd like to release 3.1.4 tomorrow, but
not if it's putting incorrect entries in the index.

Wow, patches to 3.1.4 before it's even released! :)
