Description roystgnr 2000-08-28 20:34:07 EDT
My apologies for an incomplete bug report; I worked around the problem 
before recording key information, and I am unable to repeat it.

Essentially, while upgrading my Red Hat 6.2 installation to the Pinstripe 
beta, I left my computer during the RPM installs, and returned to find 
that it had stalled on one of the kde packages.  Switching VTs to the bash 
prompt, I discovered that the program "desktopconv", running under my most-
often used non-root user ID, was taking 98% CPU time and generating 
intermittent bursts of hard drive activity.  Killing that PID caused the 
installation to resume immediately.

Probably related:

After the upgrade, my home directory now includes (all real directories, not

/home/roystgnr/.kde/Desktop/roystgnr/.kde/Desktop/roystgnr/.kde/... etc,
continuing probably out to MAX_PATH.
