Hi, I'm running an up-to-date installation of openSUSE Tumbleweed with the
latest Plasma / KDE / KF5 packages.

Several times per week something was corrupting my Baloo index. It worked well
for a few days, then eventually started returning no results. To temporarily
fix it, I ran `balooctl stop`, delete `~/.local/share/baloo/`, and then
`balooctl start`. But after a few more days it would always breaks again.

This has been going on for several months, but when I switched to Plasma about
a year ago this wasn't a problem at first.

I finally reported the bug upstream:
To make a long story short, they suggested I try a patch
(, which did indeed fix the problem for me:
Would it be possible to integrate that patch into Tumbleweed please? I know
this bug doesn't affect everyone, but another Plasma user also confirmed the
same bug. It apparently has something to do with the specific content in the
user's home directory that is getting indexed, and only in specific cases it
corrupts the index.

Thanks a lot!
