I think we need to resolve this.  If we provide 0.9.10 for others to
build indexes with, we need to worry about migrating to 1.0.X in the

I'll have a prod when I get a chance.

I don't see any illegal characters here.  The ^^^^ seem to be pointing
to 0a to me, which is just a linefeed character - i.e. the normal Unix
end of line marker.

If I try this I still can't see any bad characters:

head -100 omindex.cc | tail -5 |cat -vet

TermGenerator is a new class.  Are you sure you're building against
xapian-core 1.0.X and not an older installation?

Hopefully those are mostly compatible, but I don't really know.  If
necessary, we could build the omega binary separately to omindex and
scriptindex, but it seems to work for you.
