OK, that probably explains it.  It seems plausible that the Windows
`CreateHardLink` function does not support HFS+.

Lucy uses the creation of hard links for atomic operations such as
committing a new version of the index or establishing a write lock.
Data is staged by writing it out completely to temp files, then goes
"live" at the moment a hard link gets created at a canonical location.
