	Tha HashMap()... method works fine for storing the metadata, and luke
shows that its there.  Of course getting the metadata back for later
comparison/display is also useful, and seemed like it would be
straightforward....  Naturally its not working using:

	indexMetaDataHashMap = reader.getCommitUserData()

	I get an empty hashmap back from the above.  I also tried using:

	indexCommit = reader.getIndexCommit
	indexMetaDataHashMap = indexCommit.getUserData()

with the same result (empty hashmap).  Is there a different way to do this?

		Thanks again,
