[Bug 655831] Re: update-apt-xapian-index bogs down system
Singtoh, I give many thanks for this fix. I have 4 cores (2 hyperthreads
each, so '8 cores'), so the high single-thread usage didn't bother me
too much... But the amount of time it took really frustrated me.
This goes from a 'leave Synaptic open for a while and do something else'
sort of thing, to a 'wait a couple seconds more' sort of thing. HUGE

update-apt-xapian-index bogs down system

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.
