Hi all,
first of all I have to say that I am *very* impressed by the N800, great

By the way, I just found metalayer-crawler0 is eating up a lot of CPU, I
have 4 processes, and at least one is eating at least 50% of my CPU, all
the time.

As far as I discovered, metalayer-crawler is in charge of collecting
"information about the comings and goings of media files in the system.
The metadata of media files is automatically extracted using
Libmetalayer for other applications to use."

I ended up to completely disable the daemon.

My questions:

1) Has anyone else experienced same problem.
2) Could the absence of the daemon, be a problem for other applications
(i.e. Media Player)?
