I think swish-e is giving that warning because you are using TmpDir but 
it found a setting in your environment for TMPDIR, TMP, or TEMP.

I wonder why your CPU time is the same as Elapsed time.  32 minutes of 
CPU is a lot for 1468 files, I'd think.  Maybe that's a Windows thing.

Well, I don't know windows error messages, but it looks like something 
tried to read a null pointer.

Do you have a Linux machine on your network?  Can you try indexing the 
same files there?
