comment Why does mdworker segfault when scanning files owned by root?
Assuming you have some third party apps installed, here's one idea. Try "split half" on /Applications – ie move half the apps elsewhere temporarily, rebuild the index and see if it fails... if it fails, the issue is in those apps that remain: repeat the process until you've narrowed it down (hopefully) one specific app. (Writing in a rush: sorry if this is unclear...)

Thanks @mjturner - good point! I've just rebooted and retested. The changes have persisted, but sadly ctrl-alt-6 still does nothing.

@NilsHaldenwang The reports should be visible in /Applications/Utilities/Console.app, I think under User Diagnostic Reports or System Diagnostic Reports.

It might be helpful to see the rest of the crash report (it contains some details of what the various threads in the app were doing when you force quit it).
