So one workaround would actually be to not allow the index files to be deleted.
Another would be to try to wrap ever every call to search() or similar in
eval(). Wouldn't have to be the whole script.
Another would be to copy all the index files to each httpd box, instead of
using NFS. Pain.
I am going to work on option #2 today, I think. Although I wish there
would be a way I could check without actually calling search() etc., but it
seems like that check could succeed and then the search could fail anyway,
since it is not atomic.
Also, I wonder ... could search() fail and *not die* like that? Maybe only
part of the file is gone? Or is this all-or-nothing? I *think* from what
I understand of the problem, it will fail entirely or work entirely, but I
lack full confidence in that assessment.
