0.14 OSX riaksearch in inconsistent state

I just ran a script on a my dev machine to remove everything in the
local riaksearch instance.  In the process, I found something very
strange.  Specifically, there exists objects in my instance that
cannot be deleted (I get an error whenever I try) and that always
appear with their data intact.

Here's a specific example:

> curl 'http://localhost:8098/riak/clips/9ce2532a8d53b6335b1c4d3955d1267345905cac:4c8a0a1d8ef83af4be6a9aa170d6323ecba22b2f'
{"user":"9ce2532a8d53b6335b1c4d3955d1267345905cac","blob":"4c8a0a1d8ef83af4be6a9aa170d6323ecba22b2f","ctime":1297550238922,"mtime":1297550238922,"text":"something

> curl -X DELETE 'http://localhost:8098/riak/clips/9ce2532a8d53b6335b1c4d3955d1267345905cac:4c8a0a1d8ef83af4be6a9aa170d6323ecba22b2f'
<html><head><title>500 Internal Server

       [{erlang,iolist_to_binary,[notfound]},
        {wrq,append_to_response_body,2},
        {riak_kv_wm_raw,delete_resource,2},
        {webmachine_resource,resource_call,3},
        {webmachine_resource,do,3},
        {webmachine_decision_core,resource_call,1},

        {webmachine_decision_core,handle_request,2}]}</pre><P><HR><ADDRESS>mochiweb+webmachine

Meanwhile, sasl-error.log shows for that last command:


=ERROR REPORT==== 18-Feb-2011::08:24:18 ===
webmachine error:

{error,badarg,
       [{erlang,iolist_to_binary,[notfound]},
        {wrq,append_to_response_body,2},
        {riak_kv_wm_raw,delete_resource,2},
        {webmachine_resource,resource_call,3},
        {webmachine_resource,do,3},
        {webmachine_decision_core,resource_call,1},
        {webmachine_decision_core,decision,1},
        {webmachine_decision_core,handle_request,2}]}

Does anyone have any ideas what is going on and how best to avoid it?
It stuff like this that terrifies me.

Thanks,
