      Description

      I still get this error in 2.4.1 - if field does not exist in index, there is nullPointException if it search over multiple index. In following test code, there is runtime error, here is part of test code.

      indexSingleFieldDocs(new Field[]

      {new Field("ds", "xyz", Field.Store.YES, Field.Index.NOT_ANALYZED) , new Field("dsc", "hello", Field.Store.NO, Field.Index.ANALYZED)}

      );
      indexSingleFieldDocs(new Field[]

      {new Field("ds", "def", Field.Store.YES, Field.Index.NOT_ANALYZED) , new Field("dsc", "hello", Field.Store.NO, Field.Index.ANALYZED)}

      );

      ...

      QueryParser p = new QueryParser("dsc", new StandardAnalyzer());
      Query q = p.parse("hello");
      Hits hits = searcher.search(q,new Sort("ds"));

      If change "ds" to some others, got this exception:
      java.lang.RuntimeException: field "ds" does not appear to be indexed
