Do you know what am I doing wrong?

Sounds like you need to increase the size of the lock table. See the
note at the bottom of this article.

The most common occurrence is running out of locks while creating the substring index for an attribute with many values, or many long values. The longer a value, the more index keys it uses. Each index key gets written with its own lock, all under one BDB transaction. Since transactions don't release locks until the entire transaction completes, updating a single entry can use up a large number of locks.

For long values representing verses from four biblical books in 11 translations I can do a full substring index and get by with:

set_lk_max_locks 8000
set_lk_max_objects 8000

in my DB_CONFIG.
