File search in Dolphin doesn't return any results for any search string; the cause is probably related to the baloo_file process crashing after every Plasma startup. I've already tried rebuilding the Baloo index (balooctl disable && balooctl purge && balooctl enable), which seems to make file search work again after reindexing is done, but at the next startup the crash happens again and search stops working again

Additional info:
* package version: 5.77.0-1 (the issue was already present in the last few versions, don't know how far back, since I installed Arch last September)
* excerpt of crash from journal in the attached file

Steps to reproduce:
* start a KDE Plasma session with baloo installed and enabled (default config)
* open Dolphin and press Ctrl+F
* enter the name of any file you are sure is present in the home folder or subfolders
* no results will be returned
* after rebuilding the baloo index, results will be returned correctly, but this only lasts until the next restart
This task depends upon
