I found that the “weight” field in the auto suggester doesn’t like the field type I have (not sure if this is because it’s negative, or just not the right type of numeric). The easiest way to fix this is to remove the field from the suggester:

<str name="weightField">total_quality_f</str>
Looking for a good programming book? Code Complete influenced me a lot as a programmer (the first edition starts at $0.01 used on Amazon).
