"background merge hit exception"

Chris Harris-2
I've made some changes to my Solr setup, and now I'm getting the
"background merge hit exception" pasted at the end of this message.
The most notable changes I've made are:

Update to r690989 (Lucene r688745)

Change a few things in my schema. In particular, I was previously
storing my main document text and the metadata fields in a single
"body" field, like this:

*****

   <!-- This is what we use for the default text search and for
highlighting : -->
   <field name="body" type="shingleText" indexed="true" stored="true"
omitNorms="false" multiValued="true" />

   <copyField source="companyname" dest="body"/>
   <copyField source="date" dest="body"/>

*****

whereas I'm now using "body" as a sort of alias that just gets
redirected to other fields, like this:

*****

   <!-- This is only an alias used to populate other fields using copyField. -->
   <field name="body" type="shingleText" indexed="false" stored="false" />

   <!-- This is what we use for the default text search: -->
   <field name="everything" type="shingleText" indexed="true"
stored="false" omitNorms="false" multiValued="true" />

   <!-- Stored text for use with highlighting -->
   <field name="kwic" type="shingleText" indexed="false" stored="true"
compressed="true" multiValued="false" />

    <!-- Note: The maxLength parameter is for the copyField max length
patch (SOLR-538). At first I thought
                      that patch was causing my difficulties, but then
I had the same trouble when I built without that patch -->
   <copyField source="body" dest="kwic" maxLength="100000" />

   <copyField source="body" dest="everything"/>
   <copyField source="companyname" dest="everything"/>
   <copyField source="date" dest="everything"/>

*****

When I was indexing with this new setup, things were initially fine,
and segments seemed to be merging fine. I ran into trouble when I sent
an <optimize/>, though. I think in an earlier run I also got a very
similar exception just from document adds, without an explicit
<optimize/>.

I'm also running with a shingle-related patch
(https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1370 /
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-744) and the rich document
handler patch, though I've used these before without trouble.

Is it possible that my schema change is illegitimate? Am I not allowed
to have non-indexed, non-stored fields, for example?

Anyway, here is my stack trace:

Re: "background merge hit exception"

Michael McCandless-2

In fact this (the root cause NPE) is a Lucene bug -- I have a small  
test case showing it.

It can happen when you have compressed text fields (Store.COMPRESS) in  
the index.  I'll open an issue and fix it.

Thank you for raising this!
