I just indexed the file you attached without any issues. Are you still experiencing this issue?

Indeed, seems to be fixed for me, at least I do not run into this issue anymore.

My bugreport was flagged as a duplicate of this one. However, in my case it concerned a file that was being written while it was being indexed.

This might explain why this bug, later, seems fixed and then resurfaces.

Perhaps other bug posters can tell us how likely or unlike it was that the offending file was being written to at the time of the crash?

bug 90144 has newer debugging information as the old ones to not work with the new apport-retrace tool.

Thanks for your reports.

This bug should have been fixed with tracker 0.5.4-4.
Please, reopen the report if it happens again.
