confluence suddenly stops indexing new content

Hi all,

We are experiencing a weird behaviour in our confluence 5.1.3 instance. It seems like the scheduled jobs in charge to indexing new contents is failing.

As I can see, there are two jobs related: clean index queue and flush index queue.

In the "content indexing" section, the queue contents starts growing until restart or "flush queue" manually issued by admin ... then a week later, confluence stops indexing again.

Are we hitting a known bug? how can we fix this? is really annoying as the end users can't search for content just created by themselves.

Asked to atlassian support and they provided these issues:

Changing pdfbox jar from 1.7.1 to 0.7.2 solved the problem!
