I have a 1.7GB index with 440818 documents. Queries that take 0.23846 seconds on my MacBook pro take an indefinite period of time on a Fedora Core 4 EC2 instance. Five minutes and counting...I'm using Ferret 0.11.3. I don't see any errors in the logs. Has anyone ever seen anything like this?

hi erik, did you find the reason for the difference?

I did. It was a stupid mistake on my part. On linux the index was owned by root and there was a permission denied error that was caught in an infinite loop so the query never finished. I think it could be a bug but I haven't heard from David and have not followed up on it.
