When a.NET application calls Cache.RemoveIndex()  the index on the cache does not seem to be removed (The same will happen with a Java application).

Code like:

INamedCache cache = CacheFactory.GetCache("dist-cache");

// create a POF-based index on some first value in the stream
PofExtractor extractor = new PofExtractor(0);
cache.AddIndex(extractor, false, null);

// drop the index - should be removed so no problem is caused
cache.RemoveIndex(extractor); // <<-- does this method fail?

// wait a few seconds in case the index removal is asynchronous
// to allow removal to complete
System.Console.Out.WriteLine("Test going on");

// insert a value incompatible with the POF extractor index
// should be no problem beacuae the index has been removed
// appears the RemoveIndex() method fails

cache.Add(key, val); // <<-- this line causes an exception
                     //      in the cache server log


runs into PofNavigationException on the cache server:

This shows that when the cache.Add() is executed the index still exists and has not been removed.
