It seems that the crawler can take CPU dozens of secs when large MMC/SD
card with a lot of media files is inserted.  However, eventually it
should stop that activity.

In the case where it doesn't stop consuming the CPU, the MMC FAT
filesystem has been corrupted.  If you get continuous CPU usage from
the crawler without FAT corruption (say, after 5 minutes), please add
a note about that to the Bugzilla (you might notify the mailing list
