Thank you for your hint, but that does not help me on my problem. My
problem is actually that I am not able to _close_ writable indices
properly. With closing I mean "not having any open filehandle left in
my process or any child-processes (like /bin/cat)", because disk space
from deleted _files_ (on disk) gets freed not till then every single
handle to it is closed. My issue is, that /bin/cat randomly (?, it
seems so) remains with open files after closing.
