hi all, is there any progress on this one? as far as i can see the problem is fixed? btw when using kernel 2.4 kded behaves fine. maybe you want to note this as a workaround. so this bug prevents me from using kernel 2.6 on a laptop. is there any other workaround (e.g. using some config-files) since on a dual-athlon server using kernel 2.6.11 kded behaves fine as well. i'm using debian testing. greetings, fritjof.
