    How can I tell if it is still indexing and how long does it take ona clean and jerk install that wipes the HD ? I was experiencing VERY choppy genie efects and dock animations for about 2 hours after the install of Leopard.... oddly seems to come and go WTF

    1. When you try to use Spotlight it tells you it's still indexing.
    2. High processor usage from mdimport

    You will see a dot in the middle of the spotlight magnifying glass, and when you click on spotlight it will tell you that its indexing.
