Exhibiting one case where does things nicely is not a justification.

On my desktop, Beagle is regularly browsing my files. I am not even sure that 
is has indexed all my documents, even if I am using it for six months.

I regularly (about once a week) need to trigger beagle-shutdown when my load 
is high, even though the beagle daemon has nice=19. You can blame the kernel 
scheduler, perhaps.
