I checked it out, but it's seems to be a global system property-- as I 
understand it, it would be only be useful if all indexes on any given 
machine are only and forever going to be read-only. I'd prefer a more 
flexible approach that expects write access but doesn't break searching 
if it doesn't get it.

Right now suggestions from other people around here are running toward 
modifying the code to write lock files to /tmp or C:\temp, however I'm 
pretty sure that would be a bit of a serious change for me to do given 
that I'm not familiar with the source.

Any thoughts on a nice, easy way to get around this?

Thanks for listening!
