They both compete for a lot of resources... You probably shouldn't run  
them both at the same time.  My cyrii run on Solaris, so I'm not  
familiar with what platform specific issues you may be having.

You might try running just squatter one night without expire and see  
how it does.

Also, make sure you're running squatter with the option (think it's - 
s) that makes it only reindex mailboxes that have changed since the  
last squatter run.
