I can't see any problems with running two indexes at the same time -- if
you run out of RAM that machine should just swap and become very slow.
(I think on Linux the kernel will kill off processes -- is that true?)

But, normally, running two indexing jobs at the same time won't really
help -- one job is running as fast as it can on your hardware, so
running two jobs at the same time probably won't make it finish any faster.

As for that error after you tried to index -- swish-e indexes to
temporary file and when indexing is done they are renamed (Well, on
Windows the old indexes are first deleted).  The idea is that a bad
index won't replace a good one.

Dave, any ideas why zlib wasn't copied?  Is that some kind of permissions
issue on Windows?  The installer isn't trying to rename the zlib.dll
file, is it?
