If BEAGLE_HOME is set, _it_ becomes the home-directory. If you only
want to move the .beagle directory, you can use

This could be a result of several bugs. Somehow the roots are being
ignored. In our language "probably the filesystem backend is not
working _at all_".

If static-index are built with --recursive (beagle-build-index
--recursive), then you do not need to use a static-index for each

Nops. That could happen with 0.2.x (actually completely fixed with
0.3.4 + mono-1.9). And if you see multiple beagle (or beagle-helper)
processes, then more things can go wrong. You best option is to kill
-9 the processes. Unfortunately 0.2.6 didnt have the
index-self-healing feature, so there is a slight probability that the
index will be left in a corrupted state on kill -9 and the index has
to be rebuilt.

I agree with Nirbheek.
OTOH, you have another option since you are already using StaticIndexes.
Build a static index for each "root" and just use static indexes. Pass
"--deny-backend Files" to beagled to _not_ start the FileSystem
backend (to index BEAGLE_HOME/HOME and other roots). This is more
predictable and less prone to errors; it also has a lesser chance of
being corrupted if killed with kill -9.
