At least once a day...

mdimportserver crashes (I get a little dialog saying it happened)

This is not a fatal thing as the box (MacBook Pro 17") seems to continue to chug along quite happily... 8-\ (and for some reason .. that bugs ME)

I am assuming this is the Meta Data Import function for OSX (probably as attached to the function of Spotlight.. am I wrong about that...

It has all started in the last few days and is starting to REALLY bug me now..

But then.. should it... (yes I am asking)

I use DejaVu (you know.. the wrapper for pSync) to do my backups automatically.. and => IT <= seems to be running flawlessly...

and of course after a nightly backup.. spotlight is going to look at what happened and account for it in ITS index of 'stuff'..

should I just ignore all this or should I dig further...

All my other utilities say "all is well in the land of disk"
And this is an area of Mac OS I am not familiar with

Comments folks...

anything welcome..

Thanks in advance
