Subject Re: Lucene 3.6.0 Index Size

One thing to keep in mind is that the default merge policy has changed in
3.6 from 2.3.2 (I'm almost certain of that). So it's just a hunch but you
may have some unmerged segments left over at the end. Try calling
IndexWriter.close(true) after you're done indexing.
