Problem with dev-25?

I set up two servers with dev-25 today.

The first one went great, no problems at all, indexed the site (only about
700 files) in about 30 seconds, even on an ancient P133 server.

The second one, though ... running on an Alpha/533 with 320 MB, indexed
about 90,000 files, and memory usage (using -e) was about 30 MB while
swish-e was reading the files.  Memory usage jumped up to about 90 MB once
the common word removal started.

Still, things looked to be OK, but something got stuck when it got to
writing index entries.  CPU usage stayed maxed out.  The files were not
being updated, and yet the process stayed running.  I finally killed it an
hour later.  swish-e output follows.

Could I be running into some sort of a limit?
