Runaway process

  FInally found a runaway process with swish-e. However, I didn't realize
the bin was striped so no debugging symbols. I recompiled and installed a
-g version and removed the strip command, so if it happens again I might
have a better stack trace for you.

  PID USERNAME PRI NICE  SIZE   RES STATE   TIME   WCPU    CPU COMMAND
 8283 nobody    -3    0 1448K  736K run   199:46 23.70% 23.94% swish-e

(gdb) where
#0  0xef6b8884 in _read ()
#1  0xef6eb628 in __filbuf ()
#2  0xef6ef3b8 in getc_unlocked ()
#3  0x16b18 in getfileinfo ()
#4  0x16a1c in operate ()


  Indexing happens under a user account, so it wasn't an indexing run.
