    After p_manage_05: number indexes (Government doc., Dewey, OCLC) not working.

    After running p_manage_05, the various number indexes (Government doc., Dewey, OCLC) are not working. [

    Though the abc01 $data_scratch p_manage_05 logs look OK (the p_manage_05.cycles has all "+"s and there are no errors indicated in the p_manage_05_a logs or the p_manage_05_c log), the main log -- $alephe_scratch/abc01_p_manage_05... -- is incomplete, indicating that the job never actually finished.

    Since all the other steps finished OK, it seems that the only step which did not complete is the building of the z11 Oracles indexes. This was confirmed by doing util a/17/14 for z11, which showed that these Oracle indexes were missing. I am using util a/17/2 to build them. It should take about 1/2 hour. After it is done, the searching should be OK. (Note: Since the util a/17/2 showed that there were duplicates, we needed to run util a/17/18. That worked.)

    It's unclear just why this happened. It *seems* that, the main p_manage_05 process (which is responsible for doing the Oracle indexing once the other steps are done) was killed or died for some reason. (Note: it is highly unusual for the main process to die without writing anything to the log....)
