Hello, Andi.

AV> I imagine you are running a recent gcj already since you solved the 4gb file

yes. I build latest gcj (4.0 now) from cvs.

AV> To build a gcj with LARGE_CONFIG, see PyLucene/INSTALL.

Well, I already built gcj with this option.

Also, I have attached file which can reproduce bug about
OutOfMemory on bix index. I use Queue() to initiate search in the
PythonThread. Maybe Queue() can affect on things?..

Tomorrow I am going to port my example to java.
