This usage is [supposed to be] perfectly fine.  Any ops you do with IW
while IRs are in use, IR is being opened/reopened, is fine.  You can
even open a new IW with create=true while IRs are in use.

This is definitely not good.  Is the index otherwise healthy?  Like
this error is transient and later on opening a reader succeeds?

What locking are you using to ensure the two IWs don't open the index
at the same time?  Just the default locking for your Directory impl?
Which Directory impl are you using...?

What filesystem is the index on?  It looks like /tmp which is
presumably a local filesystem right?
