TermEnum enum = reader.terms(new Term(field, start));

It is indeed possible that the '10' value could be text from another field.

I must say that as a user of the API I'm (obviously) surprised if the above API call returned
results outside of the field specified. If that is indeed the case if is almost certainly
the cause 
of the issue. I'll add some more logging to confirm.
