anyway (imo) at very least a default cron should launch such speed-sinks some time (30 minutes?) after system startup, and it should be launched with nice, so that it actually is.

Last time I checked, the tracker-extractor IS running with nice 19! That does not mean it can't boost the CPU to 100% though (which it does usually for a rather short time).

I haven't seen issues with tracker 'taking away' snappiness of the system in a long time.. geeks looking at a CPU spike don't mind it, if they understand it...

Most of the time, though, the users 'noting' the 100% CPU spike are not aware of niceness of the tasks (it does exist on Windows.. but honestly: anybody ever used it more than 'what does this do'?). So instead of advising them to uninstall the 'offender', it might be smarter (although more time consuming) to explain the situation.
