How reproducible:
reproduced 3 times
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Apply the update
2. leave the computer on for a few hours, not sure if it needs some use during this time, but has got worse with no interactive use. Seems worse with Thunderbird but I haven't spent much time trying other applications.
3.  Eventually  the keyboard & mouse will become very unresponsive seconds for the mouse pointer to move each step. 
4. reboot then undo the update & it is ok. 

Actual results:
Keyboard & mouse become very slow - mouse pointer moves in jerks that can take several seconds. Can get so slow it might have hung.

Expected results:

Additional info:

Cant apply update until this is fixed.

Comment 1 John Willis 2013-07-03 09:08:26 EDT
Apologies but it doesn't appear to be the update now.

The morning after posting the bug the system became very slow, with system monitor indicating all 2 gig of memory used and a large amount swapped to disk. 
Applications open: Thunderbird, stellarium and Impress. This was without the dbus update. Memory wasn't freed up when the applications were closed. I tried booting into older kernel updates but the same thing happened. I left the system for about and the memory freed up. Unfortunately I didn't think to look at the processes at the time. I have applied the latest yum update and it is working ok. 

I suggest you close the bug. If it happens again I will check to see what is using the memory.
