[Perlfect-search] Indexer quits while calculating weight vectors

I successfully installed Perlfect Search on a Linux machine, which I
have not telnet access to.  I am indexing via http using IE with use
CGI::Carp (fatalsToBrowser); uncommented.  The indexer quits with no
error messages at the same place every time, about 25% of the way
through "calculating weight vectors" as shown below:

Calculating weight vectors: 
0%  10%  20%  30%  40%  50%  60%  70%  80%  90%  100%
|----|----|----|----|----|----|----|----|----|----|
>>>>>>>>>>>>

If I comment out line 172 in indexer.pl as shown below:

print "Calculating weight vectors: \n";
#weights();

The indexer will complete successfully, but of course, I get no results
in the search.

Any hints would be appreciated!
