Not at all, thanks very much for all your efforts on it and thanks for the
idea on the JVM.

Those documents are pretty old ones (the index was up to 700,000 by then)
so this is interesting. I had re-indexed a while back, to get around this very
same problem the first time it occurred, and optimize worked at that point.
So these two documents were presumably not corrupt then.

It's very unlikely that they were edited, being so old, so no re-indexing
should have been done. So how they became corrupt is a mystery.
