Because they don't. They use sqlite. sqlite, you will note, works
basically everywhere, including NFS-shared home directories, without
incident. (Of course, strigi doesn't work on NFS-shared home directories
anyway, but thats less strigi's fault than the fault of the kernel
hackers for implementing a filesystem notification feature which
silently fails to work properly on network filesystems).

I take it you don't use Chrome, either (which also uses sqlite, if
anything much more heavily than FF).
