Merging Search Index Problems

I'm fairly new to the JavaHelp scene and having troubles merging helpSets. I have created a master helpset and am dynamically merging the other helpsets into it. The TOC merges just fine, but the keyword search index is not merging. I have used the jhindexer command to generate searches for each of the slave/child helpsets, and when viewing them on their own, the keyword search works just fine. I have tried to specify how the two merge in the .hs file but that doesn't seem to make any difference. I have also tried making the search db folders all named the same thing as well as named differently. I have run out of ideas and going through various forums and documentation files I seem to be the only one with this problem.

Anyone have any idea why the search indexes are not merging?

Thank you for your quick respone.

Are there any work arounds? Our product will be shipping in the next few weeks. Otherwise I guess I'll disable the search and add it as a "new feature" for the next version.

With a little bit of luck we should be able to have the next release
avaialable to you by then. There are no workarounds other than upgrade.

If you're using V2.0 it's a known problem that has been fixed in V2.0_01
which is shipping shortly.
