Hmm, the code there looks fine to me.  Also, it hasn't changed for about
2 years, so this doesn't look like a bug in Xapian to me.

Kevin: Are you sure you're exporting XAPIAN_FLUSH_THRESHOLD after you
set it?  Also, check you spelled it correctly!

Also, does your patch fix all your complaints about flint performance
in 1.0.x?
