Bug#392846: kicker: Eats up lots of cpu and occasionally hangs

Package: kicker
Version: 4:3.5.5a-1
Severity: important

After updating 2 machines to kicker 4:3.5.5a-1 I noticed the idle cpu on
both computers was quite high, and often 100%.  Top revealed that
kicker was to blame.  Further inspection showed that kicker would be
unresponsive and fail to redraw when the cpu hit 100%.  

Running strace on kicker on one of the machines showed that it was
repeatedly trying to open xlcUTF-8.so.2, a file that does not exist in
any package.  creating a link with that name to xlcUTF8Load.so.2.0.0
in /usr/lib/X11/locale/common seems to have solved that particular
issue, and resulted in slightly better kicker performance, but it is
still way, way worse than it should be.  

Downgrading to 4:3.5.5-1 solved the problem.
