Which version of SWISH-E, OS, compiler, etc? Sounds like maybe you are
hitting some quota limit (maybe a memory or runtime quota?). How long
does it run before being killed? Do you have a debugger or some other
way to see what is killing it? A backtrace might tell you something
Have you tried running it nice to see what happens? I always run
indexing at nice 20 just to keep it from hogging resources needed by
more important processes.

Does it pass the make test?

That's worth a try.

I'm not sure what the obvious answer is. I don't think it's RAM, you'd
get an "out of memory" error or similar. SWISH-E uses an error-checking
malloc. Many things come to mind. 9500 documents isn't a large
quantity, but, if they are sufficiently large it could be taking to much

Load it into a debugger and try to see what's really going on.
