I'd propose storing the version of beagle, and only trying again if 
stored_beagle_version != current_beagle_version. Combining this with a kind 
of 'blacklist' somewhere, which stores the ids of all files causing the 
helper to crash, would solve the whole problem transparently for the user. 
Just check if the beagle version changed and try to re-index the files on the 
blacklist. Otherwise this would pose the problem: Hey my new beagle is 
supposed to fix the helper crash I reported, why am I still unable to find 
the offending file in the index?
