Thank you all, it was hard disk space. Just thought 167MB free after
running rundig meant I had enough space. Finally ran with no errors with
600MB free.

Total db directory size, 311MB. So, set to index all of every page on my
site, the db directory is about 6.5% larger than all of the files

Now I'll have to try using contrib/wordfreq/ or Geoff's method. I assume
halving the database size would not only save disk space, but speed

Edited db.worklist, I assume?

Thanks again,

Jeff Hill
