Time Machine Waiting for Index to Be Ready

My Time Machine backup (on OS X 10.7) was stuck on Waiting for index to be ready (100) for a long time (it kept logging this once every minute for 20 minutes).

I ended up killing the mds process. I was treated with an Indexer unavailable (200), then another Waiting for index to be ready, then the backup completed successfully:
