Description of problem:
This occurs when I open the "Known Wi-Fi Networks" listing. It seems isolated to when I have a WPA2-Enterprise network configured. gnome-control-center starts taking 99% CPU and mapping absurd amounts of memory (almost 100GB last I checked). strace indicates rapid polling of multiple file descriptors. I induced the SIGABRT to be able to file this report.
Version-Release number of selected component:
cmdline: gnome-control-center --overview
runlevel: N 5

I experienced this issue on the previous Fedora release, as well. It sometimes manifests as a freeze of the Control Center interface immediately after saving the configuration of a WPA2-Enterprise network. So, I don't think it's specifically related to the "Known Wi-Fi Networks" interface.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '28'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 28 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 28 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-05-28. Fedora 28 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
