I'm not to sure about this one. Are you by any chance explicitely
deleting the lock files when your app starts up? I've seen a few
people do that. The only way I can see doc numbers getting out of
order is if you delete the lock files. Any chance I could look at more
of your code? Is this for RForum? Perhaps I could check it out of svn.
Anyway, I hope I can help you out with this.

PS: If you are interested you should join the Ferret mailing list. You
seem to be doing some more advanced stuff judging from the bugs you're
finding. ;-)
