[Perlfect-search] Problem with initial indexing of site

Hi, all,

I've installed Perlfect 3.09 on a SunOS sun4m machine running Apache. 
When I started my initial index, everything chugged along swimmingly 
for about 1/3 of my site and then I received the following bombout 

sdbm store returned -1, errno 22, key "146" at ./ line 197.

Line 197 of reads:

     $tf_db{$_} .= pack("ww", $doc_id, $tf{$_});

I gamely tried running the again, but this time it bombed 
out in the first file. My site, has ~1250 
html/shtml files -- some of them over 100K (don't ask, it makes sense 
given the limited manpower we have at an all-volunteer site).

Any help would be appreciated. I didn't find anything similar in my 
search of the archive.
