I too have just tracked down some nasty problems to beagled malicing my
system.  It was when I was gaming every 30 seconds or so my entire IO
system would stop responding for a second or so.  I also found it was
locking up my system when I was running eclipse and working on the
repository in my home directory.

The most frustrating part was my inability to turn it off.  If I removed
it from gnome-session it always found its way back on login, and then
having a cron job to start it up as well is just wrong.

I have come to terms with accepting mono apps on fedora ( I love tomboy
and f-spot )  but beagle seems to still need some work.
