With the file locking code that I just checked in (to Jakarta, not
Sourceforge) you should not have this problem anymore.  Instead, if Java
exits unexpectedly, you might now find a .lock file left in the index that
will prevent restart.  In this case, I recommend removing all .lock files
before restarting your application, when you are certain that no
applications are currently accessing the index.  Is that acceptable?

BTW, this is the last message I will send to  Henceforth I will use  Please subscribe to that list if you would
like to stay involved with Lucene development.  The Jakarta lucene-user list
and Lucene website are still under construction, but Lucene development has
moved to Jakarta.
