For the record, Mark just reported this to me under windows so it was a 
problem there too, but it does work under GCC 4.1.  No idea which 
compiler is "correct", but that hardly matters...

Only problem with this patch is that it looks like it leaks the 
LeafPostList if an exception is thrown by one of the other methods (such 
as delete_document()).  Actually, does the postlist get deleted at all?

I've changed this to wrap the postlist in a RefCntPtr which should fix 
the leak issue.
