I don't think the number of files is the problem.  Can you give more
details like what your configuration file contains, the commands you are
using for indexing and searching, and any output from those commands?   And
the output from running ./swish-e -V.  

And what do you mean by bombing?  Is the entire machine bogging down?
What's top show or ps show when you give swish a query?  

You mention running Apache.  Are you running swish from some type of CGI
interface?  If so, run it from the command line instead and see what happens.

Does running the query with truss give any clues?
