indexing a site the filesystem way, I got the error: "Segmentation

The more complete end of the output was:

The index file that should have been created is empty. So I test to
disable auto-stopwords:

#IgnoreLimit 50 1000

And index again, and then it works! anyone has an idea why this could
be, and what the segmentation fault might mean?

Also, when doing command line searching, the shell prompt prints the

Originally I thought it was something wrong with my shell, but after
having tested on another system it also happens there, although whatever
it is it doesn't seem to affect searching or performance in anyway.

Many thanks,
