we cant delete stuff in tracker thats not being actively watched (which
means NoWatchDirectories)

They should not even be indexed in the first place. I guess we could
clear out any data in tracker which references nowatch stuff at start up

I should have explained that such data was indexed before. I then
killed trackerd, modified the tracker.cfg file to stop watch on a
previously-indexed directory, and then started trackerd.

are you sure?

Can you run "tracker-stats" to confirm?

This is the data I read on tracker.log on startup. Does it suffice?

if so bear in mind that any file of mime type audio/* is considered
audio (IE wav, voc, real, snd and other audio formats)

I'm aware of that and I can assure you that I don't have that many.
I just installed 0.5.3 which is currently indexing, and I will confirm
if the problem remains (or if I really have that many audio files).
