Description of problem: Reinstalled Fedora 15 yesterday and noticed that Tracker doesn't index the content of pdf files. May have something to do with poppler-glib updates.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Let Tracker index until tracker-control says idle (include some pdf files with text).
2. Search some term inside a pdf document with tracker-needle or tracker-search.
Actual results:
Doesn't find anything.

Expected results:
Tracker finds the file which contains the query.

Additional info:
using /usr/libexec/tracker-extract -v 3 -f some-pdf-file.pdf says
 Could not find any extractors to handle metadata type (mime: application/pdf)
