I would still argue that it is an incorrect setup - almost as bad as  
"not plugging the computer in".

If a user runs a virus scanner or file system indexer on the lucene  
index directory, their system is going to slow to a crawl and  
indexing will be abominably slow.

The installation guide should just make this required.

An installer can easily use the available APIs to remove the lucene  
data directory from virus scanning / indexing.
