backtrace (abrt fails to do anything for me)
Description of problem:
When I start new gnome-session I quite often get few core dumps in my $HOME. They are all (according to file core.*) from /usr/libexec/tracker-extract, but when looking at the backtrace, it seems the crash itself is in gst-plugin-scanner run from inside tracker-extract.
I have no idea what's is the cause of this by wtay suggested that switch to using g_spawn_async_with_pipes may be the culprit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
there is usually a streak (three to five or something like that) of coredumps after start of new gnome-session (evidently as tracker rechecks content of the followed directories), then it ceases to happen until tracker is rerun.
