[pylucene-dev] Segfault in JCCEnv::deleteGlobalRef

JCC and PyLucene are causing a segfault on a busy machine several times
a day. Using a debug build of Python and PyLucene I was able to narrow
the cause of the bug down. So far I've examined six core dumps. The seg
fault is always caused by the deallocation of an IndexSearcher instance.
