ACK. that indeed seems to be a problem :) never used contextual  
search though, because i mostly know what i'm looking for :)))

System Version:	Mac OS X 10.4.3 (8F46)
   Kernel Version:	Darwin 8.3.0

just chhecked on terminal, and i must admit there is emacs... don't  
know when i installed it and whether it changed something - i never  
missed .tex-indexing...

i once did some mdimport -f /some/thing to import my system-files  
aswell, but that's about it...

see ya,
