Tracker-store's purpose is flushing all operations to disk ASAP,
there's just no reason why it should eat that much memory, besides
memory leaks.

, if you have tracker >= 1.7.3 you can do:

killall tracker-miner-fs && TRACKER_MINER_FORCE_CHECK_UPDATED=1
/usr/libexec/tracker-miner-fs &

or just:

tracker reset -r
tracker daemon -s

if you don't care much about the previously stored data. Either of
those will get you rid of these warnings.

But that alone doesn't explain the memory usage in tracker-store,
please file a bug to gnome bugzilla if you still get memory issues
after trying this.
