I'll have to take a look. I think the whole hopcount code needs a rewrite,
but when that will happen...

I think I know what the problem is... If you display the date in the search
template, do you actually get document dates? I think ht://Dig isn't seeing
a Last-Modified tag, so it essentially doesn't assign the document a date
(whereas it *should* assign it the current date-time). Then when it comes
back, it sees the same "date" and decides it hasn't changed. This would be
a pretty nasty bug.
