Still no update on this annoying issue? For some time I've stopped having the issue as I removed all zeitgeist packages using synaptic. However after a month the daemon got reinstalled by itself. I have solved by removing "again" all zeitgeist packages. However is interested can do the same by marking for removal libzeitgeist, zeitgeist, zeitgeist-datahub, zeitgeist-core, zeitgeist-extension-fts and then applying the changes. Removing these packages "fixes" the issue and doesn't cause any major issues using Ubuntu. Of course a proper bug fix would be ideal!

It is around 16mb on startup, but after using the Dash a couple of time to open some programs, or search for some files, it goes over 200mb, some times even over 300mb. The memory is not freed until restart or the process is killed. I attach a screenshot of the system monitor, showing Zeitgeist-daemon using over 380mb.
