i've never really used ubuntu and am not familiar with their way of
packaging. but looking into the repo you mentioned above, it seems ubuntu
are back-porting KDEPIM, nepomuk & soprano from earlier releases; i'm
using much later versions of nepomuk / soprano related libraries.

i do remember that the whole nepomuk/strigi thing began to work for me,
i.e., come up with useable search results and not hog CPU in an
unacceptable way, with this latest upgrade to 4.7.3. your distro isn't
using these latest libraries yet, as far as i can see, which is probably
the reason it doesn't work as expected.
