If you click File > Project Settings > General tab, is the index set to have keywords in Topics or the Index file (HHK)?
If it's set for Index file (HHK) that would likely explain it because the keywords are stored directly inside the topics themselves.
If the setting is already for Index file (HHK) I'm a bit stumped and can only fathom that maybe you have stumbled across a bit of a RoboHelp bug. I've not tried using multiple indexes before. Perhaps I should try and see.

The index was set to have keywords in Topics.
I’ve changed to have keywords in the Index file (HHK), but the problem still remains in the project.
In another RH project, the creation of a second index works well.
