Re: beagle - can it clean up after itself?

 1.  I've noticed that beagle fills my /tmp directory with scores of files
named according to the pattern "tmpxxxxxxx.tmp".
      When can these be safely  deleted, and can beagle take care of doing
that itself?

Beagle is supposed to automatically delete them. When beagle is not
running, there should not be any tmp*.tmp files in the /tmp directory.
Those can be safely deleted when beagle is not running. In fact, if
there are tmp files then its is a serious BUG.

 2. Same question about files in .beagle/TextCache -  can they be safely
deleted; if so, when; and can beagle do this itself?
    This is a serious issue for me, since this directory is rapidly
exhausting my hard drive space.

The textcache is used to provide snippets in beagle-search. There is
an open bug in bugzilla about disabling textcache; note that without
textcache there would not be any snippets.

 3.  Is there any way for a user to control the amount of memory beagle
(really beagled-helper) takes up?  Every time I start beagle,
     by rebooting or by loggin on to my account, there is a longish time
when indexing takes up 50-60 percent or more of memory,
     and as a result no other process can run reasonably responsively.
(exercise_the_dog is not set.)

Its being actively worked on. From what I know, there would not be any
user setting to limit the memory but the performance in terms of
memory amd CPU usage will improve. The goal is to make beagled
