okay but if the crash occurs in an underlying lib like gstreamer then
theres not much we can do about it (except report the bugs to them)
I will investigate if the crashes are occuring due to incorrect use of
gstreamer in tracker-extract

tracker-extract only extracts embedded metadata so its probably the
video as we only recently added gstreamer support in 0.5.1 and so that
bit has not been well tested yet.

to extract and default to 128MB or so.
