Umberto: Add the -n option to your glimpseindex command line. Below are
some gory details (from http://glimpse.cs.arizona.edu/glimpseindexhelp.html)
-n Index numbers as well as text. The default is not to index numbers. This
is useful when searching for dates or other
identifying numbers, but it may make the index very large if there are lots
of numbers. In general, glimpseindex strips away any
non-alphabetic character. For example, the string abc123 will be indexed as
abc if the -n option is not used and as abc123 if it is
used. Glimpse provides warnings (in .glimpse_messages) for all files in
which more than half the words that were added to the
index from that file had digits in them (this is an attempt to identify
data files that should probably not be indexed). One can use
the .glimpse_exclude file to exclude data files or any other files. (See
