economy mode

While swish-e is running in economy mode my disk seems to be  
thrashing, and I'm wondering what swish-e is doing.

I have a 1.2 GB file. I am parsing this file and passing the output  
to swish-e so it can index the file using the -S prog switch. I also  
used the -e switch because my processor and RAM are limited. Swish-e  
then created bunches o' temporary files, like it is suppose to do. My  
drive is not full but close, 86% full. Swish-e has now been running  
for just less than a day. Currently the .temp and .prop.temp files  
are 420 MB and 720 MB in size, respectively The size of the .temp  
file is getting bigger, but it doesn't change except after a number  
of hours.

There is *a lot* of disk I/O going on. It pains me to listen to it.  
What is swish-e doing and when might it be done?
