The most common causes of this are:
 - a noindex directive somewhere in the document
 - the document was disallowed by robots.txt
 - the server_max_docs limit was reached before this document could be parsed

You'd need to correlate the htmerge -v output back to the htdig -v (or -vv)
output to see which of these conditions occurred.
