  Blowing Xapian max term length corrupts index

Status in Zeitgeist Extensions:
  Fix Released
Status in “zeitgeist-extensions” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Xapian has a (not very well documented) max term length of 245 bytes.
  See fx. For some
  reason this is not always gracefully handled inside Xapian and busting
  that limit may occasionally corrupt the index.

  This is reproducible by indexing long URLs (at least 245 bytes long).
  We already had a cap at 2000 characters, but that was apparently not
  good enough.
