Description H. Peter Anvin 2011-06-30 19:14:55 EDT
Description of problem:
I have observed, on a number of systems, imsettings-daemon running amok and occupying 100% of a single CPU, obviously making power management useless.

This is running KDE as the main desktop.

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

How reproducible:
Frequent, but not deterministic.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run KDE as desktop
2. Monitor system load
3. See imsettings-daemon run in a loop, needing kill -9 to be stopped
Actual results:

Expected results:
