Jason, I would be interested in seeing your script. I wonder if your pingest.pl script that many people use for reingest could be extended with an option to trigger the maintain_901 function as another method? Some sort of "trigger bib update" option? That could handle spreading out the load/locks also. Maybe that wouldn't allow the user to see the encoding errors though?
Maybe the encoding errors should be tested for a different way though, instead of trying to combine that with this update?

I won't repeat what Dan said, but I'll add that with a change to an internal flag or two this update will also take care of any ingests required. I think there's a browse or facet ingest required for 2.11. I'm preparing to upgrade from 2.10 to 2.12, and I've run into a similar issue as you with the maintain_901 function and some records with "bad" characters. I'm working on a Perl script to pull the MARC out of the database and do the maintain_901 work in a function in the script. The advantage of this is two fold: #1 I can trap any errors that occur and output a warning message with the record id that causes the error so it can later be fixed. #2 By modifying the MARC and then updating the record in the database, I can get the ingests to trigger without altering any database flags. It won't be fast, but it won't have the downside of potentially locking significant portions of the biblio.record_entry table. Updating 1 row at a time should keep it at row locks, or page locks at worst. If there is enough interest expressed on the list, I could share this code on github or elsewhere.
