Description of Problem:
The monodoc RPM runs 'monodoc --make-index' as part of it's post install
On openSUSE 11.0 the installation of mono-tools-2.0-1.1 fails because it hangs
when the --make-index is running.

The initial attempt at installation resulted in the following stacktrace as

Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to
an instance of an object
  at Monodoc.IndexMaker.GetCode (System.String s) [0x00000] 
  at Monodoc.IndexEntry.WriteTopics (Monodoc.IndexMaker maker, System.IO.Stream
stream, System.IO.BinaryWriter writer) [0x00000] 
  at Monodoc.IndexMaker.SaveTopics (System.IO.Stream stream,
System.IO.BinaryWriter writer) [0x00000] 
  at Monodoc.IndexMaker.Save (System.String filename) [0x00000] 
  at Monodoc.RootTree.MakeIndex () [0x00000] 
  at Monodoc.Driver.Main (System.String[] args) [0x00000] 

Since then, it only hangs after 'Leaf: Unsorted' is printed on the screen
during the creation of the index.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
2. install the mono-tools-2.0-1.1 rpm by hand or using zypper/smart or other

Actual Results:

How often does this happen? 
Every time.
