Bug ID: 383443
           Summary: Infinite loop in baloo_file_extr due to incorrect
           Product: frameworks-baloo
           Version: 5.34.0
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: grave
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Baloo File Daemon
  Target Milestone: ---

I think it was after using git stash [pop] a few times that Baloo started
running an infinite loop here:
Apparently two file name IDs became each other's parents forming an infinite
loop. I can't tell how it got there, but here is a reconstruction of the file
path data structure from the top level to the loop:

                                      docId   :29280948130416642 ->
name:"",                 parentId:29280922360612866 ->
name:"generate unicode tables.dproj", parentId:29278212236249090 ->
name:"mono-d",                        parentId:29280922360612866 -> [loop]

On the filesystem I have sort of a backup copy of a few files including all of
the above. So a first hint is that it might have to do with name collisions:

./mono-d/generate unicode tables.dproj
./delme/mono-d/generate unicode tables.dproj

There are more files in the directories, but these are all which match the
names I could extract from debugging. The grave issue with this is that it will
not only keep one CPU core busy, but also consume all system memory from
concatenating path elements ad infinitum.
