hello

i am totally new to this list, so i apologize in advance to any faults 
and ignorances i will perform.

i have been happily using namazu2 on a debian system for searching the 
archives of several mailing-lists i am responsible for.
big thanks for this very useful piece of software!

everything went well until very recently the search-functionality for 
one (1!) of 7 seven lists stopped to work.

when i search for any string, it returns "0" results, but does not give 
any errors.

i usually rebuild (update) the indices each morning via a cron job.
the first reports about the non-functional search engine reached me 
about 2 weeks ago.
i logged into the machine namazu is running on and re-run the mknmz 
script and everything went fine (search-functionality was up again!)
however, it was rather unsatisfying to have to rebuild the index each 
day by hand.

today this hackish solution stopped to work too.
i deleted my index and rebuilt it from scratch, but it didn't help either.
so i am currently out of my wits.

i would appreciate any hints. (google doesn't give me much results that 
aren't japanese and i'm afraid i cannot read that)

my system:
==========
server:
-------
AMD athlon 1Ghz, 1GB RAM
Debian/GNU linux (sarge)

search-engine:
--------------
namazu-2.0.14
namazu.cgi accessible via website

files to be searched:
---------------------
international mailinglist, language is english (but there are a lot of 
subscribers with special characters in their names, especial spanish ones)
the list in question is the one with the most traffic: the archive 
starts in 1998 and by now there are about 37850 files in it, without 
attachments (which i exclude from indexing via the 
"exclude-pattern"-flag) there are 33419.

running "namazu" from the command-line with debugging options gives me
