This created problems for me when inserting audio CDs. The autorun binary
launches an unresponsive kscd (the window appears but does not respond to clicks
or get updated when covered by another window then uncovered). In addition the
system load went over 5 . Running top showed that autorun and kjournald were the

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

More hardware details available upon request.
I tried with two different auido CDs, with the same result.
