It looks like some files or filenames can bomb tracker's file system miner.
Run as user:
(note capital S)
This shows the status of miners. If it says that the file system miner is disabled by the plugin you have a faulty condition.
You can then check:
tail -n 100 /var/log/syslog
This would show last error messages, and it shows actual files that could not be indexed anymore.
Remove the album that has the problem. I don't know if the reason is too long path, some characters in the names or the actual content of the mp3's but it came down to a individual album I had to remove.
After this you can reboot the phone (if unplugging the phone or starting the music application does not start the miners) or try starting the miners by hand typing
(Note minor s)
shows the current status of the tracker miners. File system miner should go all the way to 99% or 100% and change to 'idle' when the indexing is over (it should not take very long to index some 5 gigs of music).
Edit: Do not blindly trust what /var/log/syslog says; When tracker meets broken files, at some point it dies completely and the rest of the innocent files will get rejected too with errors.
After testing I found out that my tracker problem was caused by several broken MP3s, however the first file mentioned in the log was not at fault.
I had to go through them one by one, and while some of the files listed were clearly broken, there was one MP3 that had visibly nothing wrong with it and it played without problems on computer. No copying or renaming it helped to get it recognised in N9. When trying to add that to MyDocs/Music, sometimes it just got ignored by music player with error message in syslog, and sometimes it killed the mining process.
Example of the error message in the /var/log/syslog:
