That should mean that the two indexes you are merging were not created with
the same config file settings.

How about for now when searching you do:
./swish-e -w $query -f index1 index2 index3 ...
Merge does not work well in 2.1-dev version, and is a current topic of the
developers. It uses way too much memory.
Hopefully it will improve in the next month. What you really need is
17 hours is a long time for indexing. How many files were you indexing?
