Bug ID: 401863
Summary: baloo creates multiple entries for files residing on
multi-device btrfs file systems
Platform: Gentoo Packages
Target Milestone: ---
Baloo creates multiple entries for files that reside on multi-device btrfs file
systems. In my case I keep media files on a btrfs RAID1 file system
(consisting of 2 HDDs) which contains several subvolumes that are mounted into
subdirectories of my users' $HOME (e.g., ~/Music, ~/Media). Files that reside
in ~/Media show up in baloosearch in duplicate, and sometimes show up as a
third entry under ~/Music, even though they don't exist there (I expect had I
waited long enough, entries would show up in duplicate per subvolume).
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Have a multi-device btrfs file system (e.g., RAID1) with multiple
2. Mount the subvolumes directly in $HOME.
3. Enable baloo.
Baloo will create duplicate entries for files on the multi-device btrfs file
Baloo creates unique entries for files on the multi-device btrfs file system.
Linux/KDE Plasma: Gentoo Linux (4.19.7-gentoo)

KDE Frameworks Version: 5.52.0
Qt Version: 5.11.1
As a concrete example, I had ~/Media/marcec_backup_btrfs_image.img show up
twice, and also show up as ~/Music/marcec_backup_btrfs_image.img (no copy-paste
because I forgot to save the output before recreating the baloo database).
BTW, while researching this bug I found https://phabricator.kde.org/T9805,
which looks to me like a way to fix this problem.
