Whenever the index is removed, the next time beagle starts it will reindex all 
your files using either xattr or sqlite (in that order of availability). 
Looks like something is stopping beagle from indexing the files in question 
or probably somefile is crashing the indexing process before it is able to 
reach those files. One way to figure out whats happening is to let beagle 
index whatever it can, then when it is quiet and idle, touch one of the files 
and see what comes up in the log. If everything is ok, there should be a 
message saying that the file is being indexed.
There are several more diagnostic tests possible. So post your results and 
then we will continue.
