makewhatis causes FC4 to crash

On two occasions my system has frozen while running the makewhatis
cron.weekly job. I haven't had any other problems with the machine, the
other cron jobs and any other processor-intensive tasks seem to run fine.
The cron.daily makewhatis (which just updates with pages modified in the
last 24 hours) also is OK.

I realise that the cron.weekly job must have run successfully many times
without causing a crash.

Has anyone else had this problem?
