good news!

2. The search takes about 100% more time than before... bad news.

For example:

The same source, config, switches for about 60.000 documents:

swish-e 2.2 = 0.78s user 1.23s system 100% cpu 3.009 total
swish-e 2.4 = 2.99s user 2.98s system 100% cpu 5.971 total

Does anyone made the same experience? Is there anything I can do /
change? If someone is interested, I can provide you configuration files
and more.

Best regards,
