hi,

ok so i know that about the gaim backend, thanks for that info :)
Unfortunatly i didn't find any info how to check if a file is indexed by 
beagle. is there a way apart of using the normal search?

Additionally i think i have the same problem as described in 
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=341841
I told beagle to index my /mp3s. There are about 20.000 Files in this 
directory but beagle.
I ran beagle a few times every time from the beginnig to test if it's 
indexing more files if i start it over and over again. i think, but 
can't prove that beagle get's more and more files.

Is this a known behavior or is a directory of > 20.000 files simply too 
much?

bye
Andreas
