Error message logging is turned off during indexing, so there is no
useful information there.

This might give some information::
babel infile.sdf -osdf -f 104443 -l 104446

It is possible to build fs indexes to only some of the molecules in
the datafile, by using --filter, -f and -l options during the
preparation of the index.

No. This is a job for the future, possibly using FPB format
