I think it's the database used by Strigi, which is used by Nepomuk to
index files and meta data for the desktop search. So if you'd disable
Nepomuk/Semantic Desktop in the system settings, it should stop running.
There should be an icon in the system tray as well I think.
Right, thanks! :-)
I disabled Nepomuk, with the hope that it will fix this issue. I am not exactly
sure what is Nepomuk even supposed to do, and what "semantic desktop search"
means at all, so I hope I won't need its services. ;-) It appears it is
configured to index only the ~/Desktop directory, which is empty (bar two
icons), so in this sense it is quite useless for me.
