Howto make a "big" link ?

	Dear colleagues,

SRS is quite performant, but it seems I have discovered a case where it
does not work. I am trying to make a "Link" between the databank Rfam
and "EMBL release" (based on the EMBL accession numbers cross-referenced
in the Rfam entries). Whatever I try, I keep getting a "malloc" error.

I tried :
$Link:[$RFAM_DB to:$EMBLREL_DB token:embllink toField:$DF_Accession]

and :
$Link:[$RFAM_DB to:$EMBLREL_DB fromField:$DF_EMBLlink toField:$DF_Accession]

$Field:[$DF_EMBLlink index:str indexToken:embllink]

and :
$RFAM_DB   parallelType:chunk partN:8
Link:[$RFAM_DB to:$EMBLREL_DB fromField:$DF_EMBLlink toField:$DF_Accession partN:8]

$Field:[$DF_EMBLlink index:str indexToken:embllink sliceCount:8]

But no way, even making the index for the EMBLlink field crashes. I
suspect the problem is that some entries have too many links (the entry
FR00005 for tRNA has more than 58000 references to EMBL !).

Someone an idea ?

By the way, I have another problem. According to the manual it is
possible to make an index for a field without making it visible in the
user interface, for the purpose of using that field index to make a link
index of type "link". I tried the "Field" attributes "index:link" and
"isSystem:y", but none of either works (the field is simply not
