Description Szczepan Hołyszewski 2012-09-06 12:55:36 UTC
When the indexer is indexing files in a directory, and I disable indexing of that directory or one of its ancestors, the indexer does not react immediately and continues indexing files in that directory.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hover over nepomuk icon in the taskbar to see which directory it is indexing.
2. Disable indexing of that directory
Actual Results:  
Nepomuk indexer still indexes that directory

Expected Results:  
Nepomuk indexer should immediately abandon indexing that directory.

FileIndexer: Do not run the IndexCleaner and IndexingQueues in parallel

The IndexCleaner and IndexingQueues now no longer run in parallel, the
queues only run once the cleaner has finished. This is important cause
we now have a two stage indexing, so the fileIQ could continue to index
files whose contents will soon be cleared, or once they are cleared, or
worse while a file is being cleared (We do not have transaction support,
so this could end very badly)

This also solves the bug where the indexer wouldn't immediately abandon
indexing of a particular directory when the config file changed.
