Description Biff Bofkin 2001-09-05 20:30:19 EDT
Description of Problem:

system experiences extreme slow down/hard drive grinding.  on an amd700,
the system sees ~30% cpu utilization every 4 seconds.  the cause is kdeinit
respawmning "kbuildsycoca --incremental" continuously.  i can't figure out
why kde is doing this, though i feel it might have something to do with
"fam", though it does appear to build the system configuration cache properly. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How Reproducible:

appears to affect every machine on which kdelibs 2.2 running redhat 7.1 has
been installed

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  run redhat 7.1 
2.  install kde 2.2 rpms from one of the mirrors
3.  run kde 2.2
4.  enjoy

Actual Results:
