Hacked a bit more ...

The 'crawler' code in a-l-m has a bug comparing a timestamp in the form
of a string with another in the form of a float. Thats why it always
inserts 0 events (timestamp test always fails). It also has a potential
divide by zero bug if there are zero 'valid_uris'.

Correcting those will make  it insert events based on the files mtime.
However they still don't show up  in gaj or dash.

Watching the zeitgeist-daemon running in a terminal one can see the
events being inserted, but still no sign of them showing up in any
queries.

Bug description:
  The Unity interface, with its files-place feature for user access to
  files/documents etc. is really great.

  However there is a problem since the search feature relies wholly on
  zeitgeist (AFAIK), in the zeitgeist is not tracking everything.

  E.g. in openoffice, I create a new file (or open an existing one) from
  within openoffice itself. This file does not show up, presumably
  because openoffice does not (yet) push its activity to zeitgeist.

  I guess any number of other programs could suffer the same problem.

  For the average user, this is surely going to be confusing. They will
  create documents via legitimate means ('New ...' buttons in their
  applications), and then expect to be able to search for them in the
  Unity files-place interface.

  To avoid this confusion I would guess there really needs to be a
  filesystem watcher on the home dir (or key folders within it) so that
  zeitgeist is aware of activity caused by non-zeitgeist-aware
  applications.
