Bug#587909: homedirnotify plugin: unusable in big setups

package: kdebase-kio-plugins
version: 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-6+lenny1
tags: upstream


I'm deploying lenny in a big setup with 250000 users and 10000 groups in LDAP. 
KDE works nice, but mounting removable media took 10-15min, which is not 

After some investigation I found the culprit which is the homedirnotify plugin 
from kded. (If you look at the code of it it becomes obvious, it cycles 
through all users and all groups...)

So I wonder, 

a.) what is this plugin used for?

b.) what is the proper way to disable it? For now I've 
diverted /usr/share/services/kded/homedirnotify.desktop and set auto-load and 
load-on-demand to false, but there must be a better way. Where in /etc/ to 
drop my modified .desktop file?

c.) it depends a bit on the answer to a.) but I think the design of the plugin 
is broken. Whats the use of cycling through all groups and users?
