Well, I wasn't trying to amuse you. ;)

You should file bugs for two reasons:

1) the developers can only fix them if they know about them. They might
need debug information from your system.

2) the Ubuntu developers can check if there are still critical bugs in
Beagle, and most importantly they can check the number of people
affected by such bugs. If that number is too high then it's unlikely to
be turned on by default. Personal reports on mailing lists are much less

I did a quick search on GNOME's bugzilla and couldn't find any bug
similar to what you described.
