Bug#341052: kicker: kasbar causes cpu peaks with some apps

Package: kicker
Version: 4:3.4.3-2
Severity: normal


this came up today after I yesterday added kasbar to the kicker.

Now what happens is that with some apps kasbar causes a significant cpu
peak that "locks" the system for a moment (i.e. mouse doesn't move and
then jumps, the same if I'm typing something when this happens). First I
thought it's just the xfce4-terminal, but this happens with gaim, xine
and gxine as well as kdevelop (to have a kde-app as example). I didn't
try more non-kde apps but it doesn't happen for konqueror or konsole.

This also only happens when any of the mentioned apps has focus and if
it's large enough, i.e. the height of the peak is directly related to
the size of the window (a 1 line xfce4-terminal doesn't show a real peak
as the system is not 100% idle...)

Currently kasbar is "invisible", I "closed" it via the arrow-button on
the bottom and I have no idea how to make it visible again. I just
mention this as this means I could not test wether this happens only
when kasbar is "active" and not visible or also if it's visible.


PS: Of course disabling kasbar makes the peaks go away
