Ah, ok, let me look into that.

libgamin0 0.1.7-2ubuntu1 on my box -- can't speak for others. Which version
had the fix applied?
Bruce, I see you mentioned gamin-0.1.7 in your email; was that the version
that you saw with the problem?
Julie, could you run "yum search gamin" and then "yum info <whatever the name
of the gamin package is>"? One or the other of those should tell you what
version you're using. Also, could you go into your home directory and
run "ls -l .xsession-errors" and send in the output?

Ok, I see where putting it into the code would be a bad idea. I do like your
idea of a config file change, though. Maybe comment it out by default, with
a description along the lines of "KDE users -- add this if you see gam_server
using excessive resources."
Julie, are you still seeing this issue? If you applied a workaround, would
you be willing to revert it to test out a new config file?
