Dear Colleagues,

Firstly, congratulations on the RC1 version.

We are running/testing swish-e-2.2 rc1 on solaris 8 for intel.

We have been running 2.1 dev25 for some time with no problems.

We are getting the following error message on a search collection that we have
previously not had a problem with.

	err: Buffer too short in coalesce_word_locations. Increase COALESCE_BUFFER_MAX_SIZE
in config.h and rebuild.

The particular file what it was getting upset about had 918843 words (fair enough

	0010.html - Using HTML2 parser -  (918843 words)

Any suggestions on the effect of making the change to the config.h file

	/* 2001/08 jmruiz -- Do not change this (it must be a unsigned number) */
	/* This is the maximum size of a block of coalesced locations */
	#define COALESCE_BUFFER_MAX_SIZE 1<<18  /* (256 KB) */
