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?
