After re-installing my database last night I have got a problem with the
search index, when ever I make a change to a page the change gets made but
the search index returns the following error.


A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the
software. The last attempted database query was: 

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "SearchUpdate::doUpdate". MySQL returned error "1034:
Incorrect key file for table 'searchindex'; try to repair it

Retrieved from "http://www.wikiav.com/wiki/WikiAV:Sandbox"


I ran a check on the database server and is saw the problem, I ran a repair
and then checked it again, the problem seemed to have gone.

When I tried the Wiki page again I got the same database error, I checked,
repaired and checked the table again, the problem then occurred again.


Is this a problem with MediaWiki or MySQL?

Could one of the Wiki pages have become corrupted?
