IIRC, IPTC indexing was added in 0.3.0. Are you using any of 0.3.x releases ? 
Even with 0.3.x, some of the IPTC tags are not extracted due to a limitation 
in the F-Spot code that beagle uses for IPTC extraction. If I recall 
correctly, its one of the lens/makernote related tag. If you are using 0.3.x 
and beagle is not indexing Application2, then it might be related to the 
F-Spot code. Let us know.

BTW, you can use beagle-extract-content /path/to/filename to figure out what 
properties are extracted.
