I experienced this same problem with an index I was building for Genbank.
I was
able to work around the problem by increasing the number of entries that are
to be
indexed separately for later merging.  This is done in the databank .i file
with the
partsize argument for the $library class.  I increased the partsize from
100000 to
500000, my first section of the index then had some IDs so the merge worked.
