Absolutely right. I'll put a comment online about how to find these
crashes with the plugin. Testing metadata parsing for strigi has been
tested really well, because it sees many different files and can parse
them all from the command line. This is great for unit testing. Simply
running dummyindexer or xmlindexer (both in strigi) will trigger the
crash problems that occur with kfilemetainfo. It's relatively easy to
make a dedicated program for scanning with only the kfilemetainfo
