E.g. if you happen to have tracker installed and login to KDE,
tracker is 
running as well in addition to KDE's file indexer (baloo). So your
files get 
indexed twice without any apparent benefit.

Except if you run GNOME integrated apps on your KDE Session - otherwise
you should not install tracker

Though I just had a look and tracker has this in its autostart files:

XFCE is explicitly mentioned there, and KDE as well (the latter I
pointless anyway, I have no opinion on XFCE).

Maybe someone should file a bug report?

We can of course change the autostart - but then decline all future
bugs for software depending on the indexer to find appropriate

Not sure if that's REALLY want we should be doing.
