Done. No reindexing message at all. All seems to work. (Except for
another detail - a small word-file which causes wvWare look.)

No, that was when only tracker was updated, not the other associated
ChrisCoulson-tracker-packages.

I have run this, but I don't get any reindexing dialogs and the log
file is around 100Mb - do you need it?

This looks like you wanted the tracker log _and_ the dbus-log. I only
collected the dbus-log this time.

I would guess my index is OK by now, so I'm not sure it is any use to
rerun anything on this machine.

I may get a chance to do this on another machine at home, which seems
to have the same "reindexing dialog" problem.
