You should run these as your regular user, not root.

It is odd that tracker-control freezes too.  I was expecting a message
about how the tracker store is initializing or reindexing.

This is supposed to be "tracker-control -k store".  The point is to kill
(-k) the existing tracker-store process before running tracker-store
with debug messages enabled, because otherwise it will just complain
that there is already a process running.
