Bill, have you tried this on Windows?  Might be worth a shot.

Rafael, could I also get a copy of the index file that hangs?  Or would
it be too large for you to send?

There was a problem like this once before.  It was in the indexer.  You
could create an index on Unix and it would search fine everywhere.  But,
an index created on Windows would hang on certian words.  I'm wondering
if we don't have something similar.

It might be a few days, I'm afraid.  I lost yet another (second in two
weeks) Western Digital hard disk.  My system disk is nothing more than
an expensive hockey puck at this point.  Once I get VMWare reinstalled
I'll have a look.
