Episerver find: Your account is not authorized to index more than 10000 documents

The Episerver Find service offers free developer indexes with some limitations, i.e. 25 queries per second and 10000 items. I recently found out what happends if you break the 10k limit and it wasn't sweet. A bricked YSOD:ed development environment.

When setting up Episerver Find developer indexes at http://find.episerver.com you get options similar to this 

Noteworthy with this is that each language version is regarded as a unique item in Find, if you have 5000 pages in two different languages they will count as 10000 items.

Hitting the threshold

When hitting that threshold this happends

The actual exception

The real issue with hitting the threshold

The problem at this point is that you cannot even access the Episerver Find administration to clear the index. What you must do is reseting the index at the find portal, http://find.episerver.com/MyServices

Thats it.
