I bet the first one that is eating the cpu was from a previous session
of KDE. You didn't boot directly into that KDE session, but you logged
out and in again, right? If this is the case, I just reproduced it and
I have already found the cause, but it's pretty difficult to find a

In any case, because I'm not sure if this can be reproduced at will
and I don't want to kill this stuck kded4 instance before I have
collected all the information required to file a bug (and therefore I
cannot retry), if anybody wishes to help me confirm it's the same bug
we are all experiencing, next time this happens please do the

1) Install gdb, libqt4-dbg and kdelibs5-dbg
2) Find the PID of the kded4 instance that eats CPU (for example, in
the above output it's 13274)
3) Run "gdb --pid 13274" (where 13274 is the PID you found)
4) In the gdb command line run "thread apply all bt" and send me the output.
