This crashes for a PDF which looks like it has no text and is just an image, see the GNOME bug for the link to it.
I can confirm this bug, but it's not a Tracker bug as far as I can see. We call:
text = poppler_page_get_text (page);
and we run out of memory and it does take an age to come back from that API call.
