Inserting mal-encoded documents into CouchDB could interfere with  
document retrieval and indexing, see 
.  Possibly one of those got into your database and now it is stopping  
the rebuilding of views.  A patch recently got added to prevent mal- 
encoded documents from being accepted, but it does not fix the problem  
on an existing database that has been corrupted.   I do not know if  
the symptoms are the same as what you are observing, but I think it  
would be a likely culprit.
