in there.

If the main beagle process is that big (beagled), then it probably won't
ever go down unless you restart the daemon.  Sizes that big are a bug.

If it's in the helper process (beagled-index-helper), then it should
shut itself down and restart when memory usage gets high.  This can
happen with a particularly large, misbehaving file (often HTML or MS
