"index file format is unknown" error & parsing images

From: <Christopher.Bragg(at)>

Hi... 2 queries
I am trying to index an intranet site using version 2.2.3 All was going
well, but suddenly I have been receiving  "err: the index file format is
unknown"  errors whenever I try to search the index files from the
command line. I have reverted to the last working version of the config.
file, but still get the message. Any clues as to what I'm doing wrong?
(I do want the storedescription, etc., in eventually, but have remmed it
out temporarily!). 
Also, is there any way to stop the parsing of .gif and .jpg files - I
have the NoContents towards the end, but this isn't stopping it - is it
possible to specifically block them from the parser?

Many thanks in advance,
