I had similar problems, Strigi crashed when indexing some specific
files, and the whole indexing process started again.

My first 'solution' was to disable Nepomuk in systemsettings, and wait
until someone fixes this problem. Well, this did not happen.

The second solution was to find the specific fils that made Strigi
crash, and report a bug at [1], attaching the file. The next day, the
bug had been fixed. I had the same problem with yet another file,
reported again, and again, it had been fixed very soon.

Using Gentoo Linux, it was simple to install the current developer's
version of Strigi. With openSUSE it's not that easy. You could uninstall
Strigi and compile and install it yourself I guess. Or wait for an
update for openSUSE.

Oh, and I nearly forgot the simplest workaround: Open systemsettings,
desktop search, 2nd tab, and select the directories you want to have
