Comment(by static-void):

 Although I haven't seen the inside of Xapian before starting this diag, I
 guess DIR_END(p) should not ever be zero. Could it be database file

 I've got an idea how I can find the primary reason for this:
  * compile libxapian with the usual debug options and -fno-inline (to stop
 setint2 being inline)
  * breakpoint setint2(unsigned char *p, int c, int x) with condition c=9
 and x=0 (if that's possible)

 Is it worth it, i.e. can it be caught like this? Or should I just not
 waste time and delete the index file?
