Best is to extract a back trace directly on your machine; try with:

coredumpctl gdb /usr/lib/tracker-extract

then at the (gdb) prompt type "bt full"; if there are mentions of missing
-debuginfo packages, please install them and reproduce the coredumpctl gdb
command (there should be no '???' in the resulting dump.

With this it might be possible to find some clues where it's happening.

coredumpctl couldn’t find any coredump files, but running gdb manually I
managed to extract the information.

First, tracker 1.10.4 became available just a moment ago, and that seemed to
have cured most of the crashes. But running gdb on the *old* (tracker 1.10.3),
I found this:

libfluidsynth is a MIDI library, and the crashes seemed to be releated to
extracting metadata from MIDI files (.mid files).

With the new 1.10.4 version it doesn’t crash on MIDI files (or perhaps it’s
just indexed all of them?), but I still get crashes, now on MP3 files,
referencing the libmediaart library:
