[development] Important search module bugs

Hi all,

I'd like to draw your attention to two significant (and possibly 
related) search module bugs that are leading to widespread corruption of 
our search indexes:

Missing nodes in search index:

The problem is missing content. You can't find a node with the search 
index if it doesn't get indexed for some reason.

Duplicate entries:

The problem is duplicated entries in the search index which bloats the 
index and makes potential upcoming query optimizations impossible.

Neither of these have been diagnosed and the source of the bugs have not 
been identified. If anyone is interested in the search code (and there 
is a LOT of cool stuff in there, very well worth looking at) is invited 
to jump in and help us out with these efforts.
