I'm running the latest snapshot, 3.2.0b2-040200 from the command line. The results I get are:

  $htsearch -vvv 'config=test32&words=cancer'
  parse error
  In line 31

where line 31 is

  build_select_lists: ALGORITHMS search_algorithm algorithm_list 2 1 2 search_algorithm ""

Do you mean 3.2.0 doesn't know about build_select_lists? That would certainly explain my problem. I'm going off the docs supplied with the snapshot.
