The normalisation integrals for the tightly-bound-state solutions of the spinor Bethe-Salpeter equation that have been derived recently are evaluated. Ghost states are found to appear when the continuous parameters characterising the type of fermion-boson interaction reach a critical value. Perturbation-theoretical methods are used to determine, for a pair of fermions with slightly different masses, the strength of the couplings that give rise to bound states with small values of the rest frame energy.
