Generally during indexing Beagle writes some bookkeeping metadata in the 
extended attribute of a file. Also, during crawling it reads the extended 
attributes. Both of these changes the ctime and the atime of the file.

You can run with BEAGLE_DISABLE_XATTR; then it wont write and read extended 
attributes. But during indexing it has to read the file, so atime would be
