Description PB 2021-11-19 18:34:31 UTC
Description of problem:

tracker-miner-fs-3 causes a memory leak after startup. Opening task manager shows that tracker-miner-fs-3 hogs all memory less than a minute after startup, which crashes all opened apps and logs me out. Killing tracker-miner-fs-3 via task manager or top prevents that from happening.

This is happening on a fresh install of Fedora 35 (Xfce spin), after I transfered all my files from a previous computer in bulk (~ 80 000 files, around 500 GB total). It wasn't happening when there were barely any files on the disk.

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Transfer a lot of files at once (80k seem to do the trick) on a new Fedora 35 (Xfce) install
2. Reboot the computer

Actual results: Crash after ~1 min after startup on a machine with 8 GB RAM (Dell XPS 13 9343).

Expected results: No crash.

This message is a reminder that Fedora Linux 35 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora Linux 35 on 2022-12-13.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
'version' of '35'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora Linux version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora Linux 35 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora Linux, you are encouraged to change the 'version' to a later version
prior to this bug being closed.
