Subject RE: view_duplicate_id chaos

I'm wondering how duplicate doc ids could have got there, tho- how is it even possible for
2 docs to have the same id? Shouldn't the second PUT result in a 409?

If the error message is correct (and lets just assume that it is) then we have duplicate doc
ids. While we can delete and rebuild the views, this takes about 8 hours and isn't something
we can afford to be doing continuously in production :)

I'd like to try and figure out the root cause for this problem and try to apply a fix to prevent
it occurring again in the future - any pointers?

Do you have duplicate doc ids in your data??

I think the view is just corrupted and needs to be deleted and recreated from scratch.
