We have the the max_excerpts configuration variable set

Often when an excerpt is displayed for a search result,
it is followed by another excerpt for the same page
that is essentially the same text. The second excerpt
starts a word or two further than the first excerpt,
and, ends a word or tow beyond the text of the first.
The result is that the same information is displayed in
both excerpts. One note is that the excerpts in this
situation seem to have more than one occurence of a
highlighted search keyword.
To find a second excerpt, begin the search for new text
beyond the last excerpt's displayed text.
