I have a PC with Ubuntu 11.04 and a Debian Squeeze chroot installed in it.
As soon as I start any KDE application from within chroot (and installed there), e.g. Kompare for viewing
git diff output, certain parts of the whole host system become slow to respond.
- The keyboard layout tray icon stops working, e.g. doesn't change layouts on click.
- The logout/restart/shutdown actions take a long time to actually start, e.g. 5 minutes or more, while doing
sudo rebootis instantaneous.
- Open/save file dialogs are slow to open and close, and sometimes even unresponsive.
I've noticed that other non-KDE native applications like Eclipse, xli, meld don't have the same problems.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what might cause it?
