This sounds truly odd. In 3.1.x and before, the document index is
essentially rewritten every time htmerge is called. So it would be hard
for it to "delete" a document but have it remain. However, there have
been bugs in that code in the past, so it's not impossible.

How are you running htdig/htmerge? Are you using the -a option? Are you
updating old databases or reindexing from scratch?
