A workaround might be to replace the DateIndexes for 'created' and
'modified' with FieldIndexes:  you will see a big jump in the number of
keys in the index, but (perhaps) a reduction in conflicts (altheough
there will be more bucket splits, which can also cause conflicts).

A longer term solution might be to come up with a derived index type
which used non-persistent objects (rather than the IITreeSet used by
UnIndex) for the set of RIDs stored under each 'minute':  you could then
inspect the state and do more aggressive conflict resolution than the
stock implementation allows (see my other post).
