I'd try without IgnoreLimit.  You now know what words it thinks are common
so you can add them to IgnoreWords.  But, I'd probably just not use
stopwords at all -- otherwise you can use those words in phrases which
might be useful.

Since 15 minutes isn't too long, it would be great if you could run swish
under gdb.  Then when it hangs you can hit ctrl-C and type "bt" to see
where it's stuck.

Something like:
> gdb /usr/local/swish/swish-e 
run -e -c /usr/local/swish/opinion.conf
^C  ( when stuck)

That might give some ideas....
