Element in Arch will crash while rebuilding the message search index. Disabling the search index prevents the crashing, but that disables the search functionality for encrypted chats.

Additional info:
* Element 1.11.17-1
* Upstream Bug:

Steps to reproduce:
1. Log into Element.
2. Go to Settings -> Security & Privacy and click Manage under Message Search
3. If message index is not currently rebuilding, disable and then re-enable to trigger a rebuild.
4. Wait for crash
