They would definitely not show up in search results - the search
results are filtered based on current availability and beagle-settings
ignore list.
As far as actually removing them from the database is concerned, I
don't remember off the top of my head how it is dealt with. Ideally,
the entries should be removed since the index (and esp. the textcache)
might retain information that the user doesnt want it to contain ...
but ignoring a directory involves traversing all files and directories
beneath it which soon creates a nightmare. I remember seeing some code
on dropping the contents of the ignored directories but I am can't
remember if it is complete or what exactly it does.
