First let me say this only happens on one of the 6 set
of indexing that is done and I can reproduce this
error every time. "4667 Segmentation Fault(coredump)"

This Indexing is rather large, about 10000 html files.
in a set of sub-directories named 0-99

The command issued is
/webdir/apache/htdig/bin/htdig -a -c
/webdir/apache/htdig/conf/htdig_build-itools.conf -s -v

Using no previous index of this data.

    Please let us know which version of htdig you're running.
    Also, if it isn't one of the latest development snapshots
    (from http://www.htdig.org/files/snapshots/\) perhaps you
    should give one of those a try. If it still fails, please
    report back with a version number (and date if it's a
    snapshot), information about which platform you're running
    on (CPU, OS version & distribution), as well as a stack
    backtrace taken from the core dump using gdb. See FAQ 5.14.

    Sorry shoudl have include this.. this is Version 3.1.5 of

    I have tried to download and install the 3.2.4 and 3.2.5
    and can not get them to make.

    There is no 3.2.5 or 3.2.4. I think you're confusing them
    with the 3.2.0b4 development snapshots, of which there
    should be one for each of the last 4 weeks. However, as
    you're using 3.1.5, the natural progression would be to try
    the 3.1.6 snapshot, which is normally refreshed every
    Sunday. This past Sunday seems to be an exception, but the
    Jan 13 snapshot should do fine.

    I don't think this can be a problem in 3.1.6 with Gilles's
    new custom strptime code. (This appears to perhaps be a
    problem with the old strptime code.)

    In any case, without more information, it's impossible to
    find the segfault, reproducible or not.

    This bug is marked to be closed, pending new response.
