I would like to emphasise Wolfgang's comments on the resource stores. I
have experienced extensive and frequent stores corruption. The only
fix I have found is to reinstall !!

I have found that if the newly added files are held within a 
sub-directory from root, removing the subdirectory resource entirely (not
the actual directory) and then issuing an HTTP request for a newly
added file contained in the just deleted directory resource, leads Jigsaw to
successfully reindex and deliver the file.

Are you asking for a default indexer which will index any file ?
If you are I use *default* with a content type of application/x-UNKNOWN

We reinstall about five times a week....

Sure would !!!
