Someone submitted a patch a couple weeks back which indicated they had
figured out the "bogus document" problem. Looks like it's caused
somehow by the ignored words list that gets persisted with the
document. (My guess is that that only happens with libxml builds and
not with expat builds, but I don't really know that for sure.)

Workarounds (until the patch is committed):

* build with expat, or
* turn off saving ignored words lists, or
* manually snip out the ignored words list using some text editor (it
  will be obvious in the XML what to chop out)
