You are saying the same server you are spider is killed?

What's the Apache log say?  If a process gets killed the parent will often
say something about it if it's killed from a signal.

Swish shouldn't be able to kill the web server just by making requests
regardless of what it is doing -- especially if running as a different user.

But if you used up all RAM then maybe the OS will start killing off
processes.  Did you check /var/log/messages (or the OS X equivalent)?  That
would be my guess.

Did you watch memory usage by chance?

You aren't indexing as root are you?

You can grab any version you like of from the sourceforge CVS web
site.  If you think it's from a change in over the last few days
then just changing that one program would be useful.

1.3.4?  What year is that from? ;)
