I was poking around in my /var/log/system.log file to sort out an NFS problem when I saw hundreds of these, every 10 seconds:
Jul 12 21:13:44 Laptop crashdump: mdimport crashed
Jul 12 21:13:44 Laptop launchd: Server dd6b in bootstrap bd27 uid 502: "/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/Metadata.framework/Vers
ions/A/Support/mdimportserver": exited abnormally: Segmentation fault
Jul 12 21:13:45 Laptop crashdump: crash report written to: /Users/robscovell/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/mdimport.crash.log
So I looked in /Users/robscovell/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/mdimport.crash.log
and what did I see ... :
Parent: GoogleDesktopDaemon 
Version: ??? (???)
Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0x60000010
A full bug report will be made to Google Labs!
