Suddenly (i.e. after updating all packages of my suse 10.3 (but not to 11.0)), my machine often shows a high load and a 1GB directory called .strigi appeared in my home directory.

How do I get rid of that ****?

I tried uninstalling with yast, but then it complained that lots of kde stuff was depending on it. I could not find relevant entries in the KDE Control Centre nor in Yast using the provided search tools. So how can I at least disable it and reclaim my cpu and disk resources?

First the trouble with beagle, now strigi! This is a pain! I thought Linux was different than resource-wasting Windows forcing you to upgrade your hardware, but now it seems Linux got even with respect to that.
