The problem is that mdextrator seems to be a cpu and memory hog :

     PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM   TIME COMMAND
30304 philou    25   0  172m  22m 7876 R 86.8  1.5   6:13 mdextractor

Is this normal, should I wait longer for mdextractor to finish its work ?

The first time you run mdextractor it needs to create its database; this means that it must extract the contents of all the indexable directories (default your home directory and the GNUstep Applications, Headers and Docomentation directories). This can take some time... When the database is created, all the successive work of keeping it updated is not cpu intensive.

Well I thought about that and let it run. I don't have that much data :

  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM   TIME COMMAND
30304 philou    25   0  172m  22m 7928 R 93.8  1.5 622:48 mdextractor

Do you mean that 93.8% is *after* the first indexing?
It should look something like this:

  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
27821 root      16   0 55200  38m 8516 S    0  3.8   2:19.95 mdextractor

and I, for texting, let mdextractor index 9743 directories containing 80245 
indexable paths and 869200 unique words!
