> This was fixed on trunk in LUCENE-1044 but I'd like to separately
> backport it to 2.3.
> With ConcurrentMergeScheduler there is a bug, only when CFS is on,
> whereby after the final merge of an optimize has finished and while
> it's building its CFS, the merge policy may incorrectly ask for
> another merge to collapse that segment into a compound file.  The net
> effect is optimize can spend many extra iterations unecessarily
> merging a single segment to collapse it to compound file.
> I believe the case is rare (hard to hit), and maybe only if you have
> multiple threads calling optimize at once (the TestThreadedOptimize
> test can hit it), but it's a low-risk fix so I plan to commit to 2.3
> shortly.
