the machine finished ! The loop was in the java api docs. There were no
other loops. There is no bug in htdig wrt. this problem (looping).

Here are some stats from the end:

htdig ran with a niceness 18 for the last 25% of the indexing. Load was
0.8 or so during this time. docdb is about 200MB. My input was about

The loop problem was in the tree:


which has more than 500 entries.

System: i486/100MHz/24MB RAM 4.3+2.8 GB EIDE disks (not UDMA), headless
(ethernet only) Suse 6.2 Linux (w. modified html documentation system - by
me). As you can see the machine was swapping like crazy. I think I'd need
a machine with 256MB RAM to avoid serious swapping. Not likely anytime

thank you all for the ideas,
