[htdig] Problem writing an external parser

I am trying to write an external parser which seems to work partially

The good news:
1) rundig script doesn't crash
2) all the files that should be indexed are being indexed as evidenced
by diagnostic writes
3) the db.docdb file seems to have the words to be indexed in it (grep
says so)

The bad news:
1) the words which seem to be db.docdb are not to be found in
db.wordlist (there's lots of stuff there, including names in the indexed
files' full path names, but not these words)
2) searching on these words produces no documents (otherwise search
seems to work normally)

If this helps:
My external parser returns records with first character t,h, and w but
not u,a,i, or m

Any help appreciated, of course.
