From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Fedora/1.7.6-1.3.2

Description of problem:
When using Mozilla, OpenOffice, or other program using the Gnome File-Save-As dialog, selecting it triggers gnome-settings-daemon, gnome-vfs-daemon, gnome-panel, and nautilus to go crazy, consuming the majority of the CPU time available, and making interactivity go bad.

Top generally looks something like:

(Affected processes have been re-niced to 19 to try to make system usable!)

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
