[TYPO3-english] mnogosearch does not index documents under fileadmin

For some reason I cannot get mnogosearch to index my pdf and text files 
under the fileadmin/user_upload directory. Indexing the html pages on my 
site goes fine!

Here's my configuration (RHEL 5 - 64bit, TYPO3 4.2.9, mnogosearch 3.3.9).

0) pdftohtml is installed and so is pdftotext.

1) First my indexing records:
Disallow: http://www.mydomain.com/*.js
Allow: http://www.mydomain.com/
Allow: http://www.mydomain.com/fileadmin/user_upload/

2) Second, my mnogosearch 2.2.2 extension configuration:
Installation path: /opt/mnogosearch
DB connection string: 
Charset DB: utf-8
Charset results: utf-8

3) Third, my TYPO3 template configuration is identical to the 
mnogosearch sample TS setup.txt from the extension directory with 
different pids ofcourse.

So far indexing the content (html files) on the website goes splendid. 
Search results display the correct found pages. However, when searching 
for (a word in a) PDF document: no search results.

When I clear my index (with -x -Cw) and re-create the index (with -w -n 
-v 5) I can clearly see the html sections (the URLs) getting indexed, 
but no PDF or txt documents which are located in my 
fileadmin/user_upload directory (in subdirectories).

4) My Apache configuration contains: Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews 

Finally, I double checked my Linux permissions and even tried to set 
everything to 777: no difference.

The funny thing is that I got it working a month ago, but apparently I 
changed something which I cannot remember :-)

Any idea what I'm missing here? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.
