It's just an idea, maybe someone knows better: as far as I know, htdig
isn't indeed creating _explicitly_ other files than what you see. But I
can imagine that some kind of sorting will need external files - and these
could be larger than you would expect. Can you maybe just give-it a try,
freeing a larger part of your /tmp or so during indexing...?
