[Bug 655831] Re: update-apt-xapian-index bogs down system


In KUbuntu 14.04 this bug is getting terrible. This process, update-apt-
xapi, tries to take about 400 M of memory, and given the minimum
cumulative KDE memory consumption of 1.5 G at idle, all my 2 G get
consumed, so I can run nothing more! This indexing process starts almost
each time when I start an upgrade through muon or a muon-related
software. I cannot just remove the apt-xapian-index, because important
things depend on it.

Bug description:
  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.

  While this apport bug was collected via a Lucid machine this also
  affects maverick.
