    Description

      Issue spawned from this thread:

      http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/lucene/java-user/50680

      When IndexFileDeleter lists the directory, looking for segments_X
      files to load, if it hits a FNFE on opening such a file it should
      catch this and treat it as if the file does not exist.

      On NFS (and possibly other file systems), a directory listing is not
      guaranteed to be "current"/coherent. Specifically, if machine #1 has
      just removed file "segments_n" and shortly thereafer machine #2 does a
      dir listing, it's possible (likely?) that the dir listing will still
      show that segments_n exists.

      I think the fix is simple: catch the FNFE and just handle it as if the
      segments_n does not in fact exist.
