Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-06-06 10:38:37 EDT

This sounds like a kernel or hardware problem.  I am going to reassign to the
kernel team.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-07-08 18:29:13 EDT
Every instance of a <a href="
search for Mutex destroy failure</a> seems to point to KDE.

Why this happens with 'ls' I've no idea.

Whatever the case, this seems completely unrelated to kernel.

Comment 4 vasundhar 2005-07-12 06:10:38 EDT
it is not limited to 'ls' alone,
I saw this in xine, I saw this is cd I saw this happening in mount and also once
in 'nautilus .'

It seems to me that after completion of some operation I am encountering the
error immediately if I try to do same in the command line.

for example 
if I run psql, exit and try todo some other operation like gnu plot or bc , it
the same from python and consecutive operation and so on 
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2005-07-13 11:30:56 EDT
yes, it's a bug in kdelibs. It's now fixed in kdelibs-3.3.1-2.14.FC3, which
will be released next week. Many thanks for your report.
Comment 6 vasundhar 2005-07-14 08:21:15 EDT
No I used FC3 on 64 bit, 
Compaq system. 
Problem Persisted. 
Comment 7 Ngo Than 2005-07-14 08:29:44 EDT
you still have old kdelibs-3.3.1, which of course still has this issue!
The new kdelibs-3.3.1-2.14.FC3, which include this fix, will be released next week
