[Bug 655831] Re: update-apt-xapian-index bogs down system
Just ran into "this issue" (FWIW) today, on 13.10. Basically, if you
install a new distro, the first time you go to use it it drags to a
crawl thanks to something named "update-apt-xapi" in top using all of
one core. Very frustrating for users of fresh installs (i.e. new users
included). Could it be niced/ionice'd please? Thanks.

update-apt-xapian-index bogs down system
Status in Enablement project for the Toshiba AC100 NetBook:
Status in Apt Xapian Index:
Status in “apt-xapian-index” package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: apt-xapian-index
This is related to bug 363695 but is not a dupe - that has been
every time the update-apt-xapian-index occurs, the system crawls.
Possibly related to the I/O responsiveness bug of bug 131094.
The process is extremely intrusive, taking simple things such as flash
video and throwing the performance down the toilet.
