Each time a search anything in the gnome overview a service dbus-:1.2-org.gnome.Documents@XX.service crash (sigsegv).

I attached the logs (which contain en coredump).

I don't know if it's a problem in gnome-document itself or a problem with the archlinux build/package.

Additional info:
* gnome-documents 3.34.0+34+g678141fa-1

Steps to reproduce:
* enable "Documents" in the gnome setting "Search" configuration
* do a search in gnome-shell overview

I want to confirm that I have the same issue. And I can also confirm that disabling "Documents" in the search settings prevents the crash.

If I understand the situation correctly, gnome-documents is unmaintained and seems trying to use tracker2 (required in deps) and tracker3 (through gobject) at the same time - and fails?

Is patching here feasible? Nautilus serves well as generic file-browser within GNOME.The application gnome-documents seems to be a small application for cloud services.
It is ugly to remove applications because of minor issues, likely other people appreciate it. But gnome-documents cause segfaults and doesn't start at all. Maybe remove the package from gnome-extra group and move it from extra to AUR?

There are possible patches but not merged by upstream.
