We originally installed version 5.8 and it worked fine for about 4 or 5 =
months.=20
Then all of a sudden, the indexer.pl started crashing. The error was:
=20
> warning, user disk quote exceeded.
> write failed, user disk limit reached.
=20
So we got more disk space and tried again and the error we got to
2578 files is:  "Segmentation fault (core dump)"

So I installed version 5.10. Now we get the same error after only 2537 =
files.

So I did a search on Segmentation fault and this is what I got:
An error in which a running program attempts to access memory not=20
allocated to it and core dumps with a segmentation violation error. This =
is
often caused by improper usage of pointers in the source code,=20
dereferencing a null pointer, or (in C) inadvertently using a =
non-pointer=20
variable as a pointer.=20

Has anyone else had this problem or can anyone give me any advice?
Could the problem be one of the installed packages that the indexer.pl
uses?
