You could try watching the output of 

balooctl status

Other than that you could attach a strace -e file or strace -e open to the 
baloo_file process while it is running. Maybe this way you can find out 
whether it has issue with a certain file or directory.

You could also use balooctl config (hmmm, might be new) or systemsettings to 
exclude some more folders from it.
