    Has anybody experienced the same? I open the spotlight search and during entering a search phrase the window disappears/crashes, the spotlight icon driefly disappears and comes back and it takes a few seconds until i can start searching again. apparently spotlight crashes.

    i have sent in feedback but id like to know if its only me.


    console log:

    Yeah I've been experiencing this quite frequently too, even with something simple like doing math inside it. I filed a radar which got tagged as a duplicate. There are so many crash logs piled up related to Spotlight on my machine...

    Same issue. It's frustrating as hell.
    Tried switching specific parts on/off but nothing helps.

    After completely toning it down to only Apps/Docs & Folders - it is stable. Screencap

    Oh hey, I don't have Spotlight at all anymore since updating to DP6. Currently encrypting with FileVault, is Spotlight not available while doing that?
