'deleted' index files, listed with lsof-command today, was listed (also as deleted)
several days ago...

But the amount of this 'deleted' files increases. So, I make a conclusion, that this is the
question of time, when the limit of 10000 will be reached.

Fortunately, the check-ins of new documents are seldom. The server (Tomcat) was restarted
(due to different software updates) relatively oft in the last weeks...  So, we had no yet
the possibility to reach this limit. But the default open file limit (1024) was already reached
several times (before we increase it)…

Thanks for your help !
