That would surprise me.

I expect rather that you're simply running out of memory and you're swapping, as
you suspected.

I would just split my single dir into 3 and create 3 indexes. Then you could
either merge them (though you might hit the same mem limit) or just search them

might also look at the -e option to swish-e while indexing.
