Hmmm... not helping. Seems to want to re-index every morning. I looked in console and spotted this. Any thoughts?

You could try removing the back Spotlight importer bundles. Do you boot your machine into any other versions of Mac OS X?

Use Disk Utility to verify (not repair) the file system of every volume. Does each one appear to be OK?

In Terminal, run the following command then touch nothing until the end result is presented in Finder:

sudo mddiagnose

should I do mddiagnose while spotlight is indexing or when it's done or does it not matter?

Ok I ran sudo mddiagnose but the end results are huge. Is there something specific I should copy and paste in here?

Hey, I'm still having problems with this. I got busy and have just kind of been tolerating it but am motivated to troubleshoot this again. Should I run mddiagnose again and post the results here or is there something from the console log I should be looking at?

Sorry, I was out of the loop for a while and lost track of this.

The 'BAD IMPORTER' messages are probably not relevant to the unexpected periods of (re)indexing.

What's reported by Disk Utility?

Result of Disk Utility verification of the file systems

Please actively use Disk Utility to verify the HFS Plus file system.

Does the utility report that file systems are apparently OK?

Hey Graham, I'll keep trying but disk utility isn't turning up anything. I tried to pay close attention to the time the indexing started this morning... and then looked at the console log to try to narrow the search... the system log. Anything loook out of the ordinary?
