This is spooky: if you are indeed messing up offsets in some way,
IndexWriter should have detected this and thrown an exception on that
doc that did it.

Yet, you are not seeing an exception until much later, which is wrong.
 So there seems to be a bug somewhere...

Which Lucene version are you using?

Can you run with assertions enabled?  Can you whittle this down to a
small test case?

Which JVM are you using?
