Subject Re: Index size for Same DataSet.

You're probably fine. Part of indexing is merging
segments, and when segments are merged the
data from deleted (or updated) documents is
reclaimed. Any slight variance in the commit
algorithm will potentially reclaim more or less

What happens if you optimize (forceMerge) as
a final step? That will reclaim all deleted space....
