Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-3848) basetokenstreamtestcase should fail if tokenstream starts with posinc=0

basetokenstreamtestcase should fail if tokenstream starts with posinc=0

                 Key: LUCENE-3848
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Robert Muir
             Fix For: 3.6, 4.0

This is meaningless for a tokenstream to start with posinc=0,

Its also caused problems and hairiness in the indexer (LUCENE-1255, LUCENE-1542),
and it makes senseless tokenstreams. We should add a check and fix any that do this.

Furthermore the same bug can exist in removing-filters if they have enablePositionIncrements=false.
I think this option is useful: but it shouldnt mean 'allow broken tokenstream', it just means
don't add gaps. 

If you remove tokens with enablePositionIncrements=false it should not cause the TS to start
positionincrement=0, and it shouldnt 'restructure' the tokenstream (e.g. moving synonyms on
top of a different word).
It should just not add any 'holes'.
