I think I put too much information in my reply.  Apologies.  Here's the
most important information to deal with first:

Don't send hard commits at all.  Configure autoCommit in your server
config, with the all-important openSearcher parameter set to false.
That will take care of all your hard commit needs, but those commits
will never open a new searcher, so they cannot cause an overlap with the
soft commits that DO open a new searcher.
