This sounds like a kernel or hardware problem.  I am going to reassign to the
kernel team.

-- Additional comment from davej@redhat.com on 2005-07-08 18:29 EST --
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.

-- Additional comment from bvasundhar@gmail.com on 2005-07-12 06:10 EST --
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

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.

-- Additional comment from bvasundhar@gmail.com on 2005-07-14 08:21 EST --
No I used FC3 on 64 bit, 
Compaq system. 
Problem Persisted. 

-- Additional comment from than@redhat.com on 2005-07-14 08:29 EST --
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
