Ubuntu Studio 9.04 locks Up During Updates and Network File Operations

On my stationary multiboot AMD64x2 pc in Jaunty I had heavy issues  both
with kernels -rt  and generic: after some minutes 100% cpu load and  use
of complete  ram (4g), extremly slow file and network operations,
lockups... barely possible to read my mail. As hungry ressources-eater I
figured out tracker assoziated prozesses and followed a recommendated -
forgot the link - workaround
run 'tracker-processes -r' in terminal,
then delete the folder '/home/MY_USERNAME/.config/tracker/'
and finally reinstall 'tracker' with synaptic.
Now everything is running fine with full performance.
Give it a try - only risk is that tracker will have to rebuild it's

good luck
