[maemo-users] /usr/lib/tracker/{trackerd,tracker-indexer}

On my N900 /usr/lib/tracker/{trackerd,tracker-indexer} have been running for
about a day and consuming about 90% of the CPU. I don't know for sure but I
conjecture that they are what is making the N900 sluggish and have low battery
life. I also conjecture that they started running when I installed a 16G
class 2 microSDHC, formatted as ext3, which is about half full.

How long will they run? (A day seems like a long time for such indexing.) Once
they complete the index, will they run only on changed/added/removed files?
