For anyone using beagle on FC6 and seeing the above hang,
I checked the FC6 patches for beagle and found an xlib patch which might be 
causing the problem. explains the 
situation in little more detail.
In short the hang doesnt happen in the actual 0.2.10 release but by an FC6 
patch which tries to smartly detect X disconnection. (beagle monitors 
Xscreensaver to tune up the speed of indexing).
If you are experiencing the hang, please unset the environment variable 
DISPLAY for the time being.

PS: I dont understand xlib that good but the patch seemed to have a good 
intent. If they find a better solution than regular polling then it makes 
sense to patch it upstream.
