The only thing I can think of is that your URLs (the unique terms
omindex uses for deduping) aren't being generated properly, although
it looks to me like they should be ... could you provide a dump of the
database after the first command (actually, the only thing I'm
interested in is the document data)? Probably another dump of what
happens if you only run the second command to a fresh database would
be useful, too.

Something like the following python script may help if you have the
bindings installed:

import sys, xapian
db = xapian.Database(sys.argv[1])
while i<db.get_doccount():
	doc = db.get_document(j)
	print "-------"
	print doc.get_data()

Run as:

$ python docdata.py path/to/database
