(In reply to Dominique Leuenberger from comment #4)
The sad thing is that tracker is only suffering from underlying libs that
generally crash.

So in any case, we need sample files that tracker tries to extract and
fails. Then we can identify the library causing the failure and fix them

I’ll try to submit a sample file, but I don’t how to find out *which* files
make the library crash. (Though I think there are many such files, since
tracker-extract generates coredumps *countinously* if I don’t disable it.)

I have kept a few coredump files, but they are *huge* (e.g. several hundred MiB
each). Are they of any use? How can I inspect them to figure out which file(s)
caused the crashes?
