At least twice, since I updated to 242 I've seen it re-index on starting putting up some kind of "Indexing on first use" modal. I'm not sure of the exact wording because it didn't stay on screen very long.

But I am reasonably sure I saw "first use".

Obviously not even close to first use.

Is some kind of index corruption happening that is forcing Brain to reindex when I open it?

Matt,

"First Use Preparation?" May seem like an odd response, but is there any chance your Shift key was held down when TheBrain was starting? This is a very rare, know issue that has only happened when there was something wrong with the user keyboard. It causes no harm in the app or data.  I'll add you to our very short list (now it's 2) of users that have seen this message.

Thanks,
Matt

Yes. I use a shortcut Opt+Shift+B to launch the brain so it's entirely possible the shift key is still held down when the brain process starts.

Does holding shift have some special significance?

Holding down shift while opening a Brain forces it to rebuild the indexes, which is normally only done the first time the brain is opened. There's no harm in it, but it will make opening your brain slightly slower. If you can setup a shortcut that does not use the Shift key, that will resolve the issue.
