Well in one of the links there is a plethoria of errors/bugs but I 
SUSPECT (can not verify) that the indexing has stopped prematurely as 
some things can be found and others not. There is an akonadi_feederrc (I 
think it is) config file that has parameters for this but I can find 
only the pointer in the kde forums "sticky" topic re Nepomuk/Akonadi 
about it and it only tells how you can speed up initial indexing.

I am looking for a, preferrably nondrastic, way of restarting the 
indexing making Nepomuk/Akonadi forget it has been done
