Hi. I got a seg fault in htmerge. It works fine on a set of documents
(about 200) that are a subset of the documents (about 500) that I am
trying to index when I get the problem.

I am using htdig 3.0.8b1 with patches: dictionary.patch, docs.patch,
documentdb.patch, and retriever3.patch from Pasi Eronen at on Linux 2.0.29.

Stack backtrace below. Is there more helpful information I could provide?
