Description Arjan van de Ven 2006-09-05 11:45:46 UTC
Description of problem:
    monitor->priv->poll_timeout_id =
            g_timeout_add_full (G_PRIORITY_DEFAULT_IDLE,
                                monitor, (GDestroyNotify)


this is clearly evil (it wakes the processor up every 100msec) and it's running
all the time when logged into gnome!

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2006-09-05 12:12:24 UTC
why btw is gdm doing this when I'm already logged in?
(not that there's an excuse to do it even when not logged in...)

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-09-05 15:10:42 UTC
This is a known problem that is targetted to get fixed before FC6.

See bug 201860.  Both gdm and g-s use the same code for this particular bit, but
i'll leave this report open to track getting the fix into the actual package.

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-09-14 06:44:40 UTC
should be fixed in the next build. Please reopen if it's still causing you
problems in gdm-2.16.0-4.fc6
