A note was just recently added to the Lucene wiki, saying that the G1
collector should never be used with Lucene, because there are bugs that
might cause index corruption.  Solr uses Lucene, so this would apply.

I have never had any problems with it, but perhaps I spoke too soon when
recommending G1.  Does anyone else have anything to add?
