So we both have our OSM tiles in the sdcard... (naturally!)

QPE is "clever" enough to know which partition is a card; when my  
sdcard was a FAT partition in /media/card, it created it's  
"qtopia_db.sqlite" file there; now that the card is an ext2 mounted at  
/home, it creates the file there (I deleted it to check). So it may  
have a special fetish about media cards... and index all files on  
them, independently of mount point (my theory).

If you "strace qpe 2>&1 | grep open" and wait 5 minutes, do you see  
QPE opening your /media/card files a lot?
