Does Spotlight take forever to build an initial index too?
I don't know about 'forever', but it isn't possible to build a search index instantly. Depending on how many files you are indexing when you first install, it will take more or less time.
Actualy, you're wrong. Default method is non-intrusive and it takes as parent said forever. But you can run by setting EXERCISE_THE_DOG variable and in that time indexing runs at full speed.
