Indexing problem os -S Prog option

I'm still working on my 2 million record db indexed by swish and XML2. I 
have a filter app writed in Java that query the whole db and "filter" the 
recorrd information in XML2. Running my app without swish, i.e. whatching 
XML2 result scrolling on video, works fine for a test of 130.000 reord.

Running it in swish by means of -S Prog option works for a while and stop 
for with error: "External program failed to return required headers 
Path-Name: & Content-Len". The problem is not an incorrect Header + XML2 
building because indexing the record that cause the crash works fine.

I don't have idea of what can let my app or swish crash. I was thinking 
about memory problem but my filter app working as standalone program 
produce the whole 130.000 xml without problem.

I saw what record seems to crash the out stream ... trying to re-index 
beginning from some records before does not crash anymore on the same 
record but after some hundereds of thousands record later ... it does not 
depend on one record. It seems depend on my program that fails for some 
reason on building the out stream or on swish for some reason.

Can anyone have an Idea of the problem? Does anyone encountered similar 

Thanks to all
