This is a well-known OT design flaw, apparently not one that 
can be corrected easily since people have been commenting 
about it for years.  

FWIW, DITA2Go does *not* have this problem, and also produces 
very fast and efficient Web help, complete with boolean search
and cleaner ALink support, in a FOSS format (OmniHelp).
