Re: Taskbar and Plasmanoids blocks sometimes for long time

Hi, Ralf,

Just a hint, which may be related. Se below.

Do you possibly have NFS file systems (FS:s) mounted on that computer? I did 
previously have problems like the ones you describe, and I traced the reason 
to be with file accesses to a NFS FS where the server went down, making all 
processes trying to access files on that FS hang a long time.

Even if oyu don't use NFS, can it be related to file access somehow?

In my case, also no CPU usage would be registered, as the Plasma 
(taskbar/desktop) application hang on file access.
