kill -9 (kill -SIGKILL) should never be sent to any program which is not
hanged. Ever tried sending SIGKILL to any filesystem or kernel process ?
You should use SIGTERM or SIGINT. kill -9 can not be handled by the
process and so beagle exits with an inconsistent state. Even if the
issue in the gnome bug is fixed, there is a high chance that after
kill-9, your existing index will have to purged and everything re-

On a different note, why do you have to restart beagle ? Note that,
besides SIGINT and SIGTERM beagle ships with the command beagle-shutdown
to stop beagle.
