OK. I won't worry on the details of what was going on.

There are ways this can be cut down. In particular, since you won't be
doing update digs, you don't need to keep the (large) db.wordlist file. You
can also change the size of the stored excerpt by changing the
max_head_length attribute. You can also use zlib compression on the
document excerpts, which helps some.
