tracker remembers past filename and content

Bug #145366 reported by Nicolò Chieffo on 2007-09-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tracker (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tracker

racker remembers the past history of filename and file content. I don't think this is a wanted feature, but it is simple to try:
- create a file (name it "abcde")
- rename the file in "newname"
- search for the old name "abcde"
- you will see that the file is between the results, even if it has the new name

a similar test can be done changing the content

tracker 0.6.2-2ubuntu2 and 0.6.3 compiled by me

Still happening. Just do this:

emilio@pochu:~$ touch holalabar
emilio@pochu:~$ mv holalabar holalabaz

Then search for holalabar. It shouldn't be displayed, but it is. Running with verbose mode shows this though:

file changes to /home/emilio/holalabar is pausing tracker
file changes to /home/emilio/holalabaz is pausing tracker
starting moving file /home/emilio/holalabar to /home/emilio/holalabaz
Moving file /home/emilio/holalabar to /home/emilio/holalabaz

This might be related to bug #132448
