Hmmm... I am out of ideas, except for: Maybe try:
It might be applicable with KDEPIM 1 version 4.4.5 as its packaged in
Debian as well.

Hmmm, for me Nepomuk from KDE SC 4.7.2/4 is the first one which actually
works nicely. I did not look after activity after login, but I didn´t
noticed that Nepomuk hogs my CPU.
I reduced the number of indexed files considerably by excluding some
directories like "Mail" which holds all the mails from my POP3 accounts -
I still do not use IMAP - cause I think that with KDEPIM 2 mail will be
indexed via Nepomuk separately anyway. I think local mail files from KDEPIM
should be excluded from file indexing automatically, I do not need two mail
Currently I have about 193400 files in the Nepomuk index of about 1,4 GiB
and Nepomuk is completely quiet.
Did you make sure that all the depencing of Nepomuk was updated as well?
