100% CPU load in X with plasma-desktop (KDE) and Nvidia
I am using KDE 4.3.3, the latest Nvidia graphic card 190.42, and xorg server 1.7.1.
Whenever I launch the kickoff menu, or try to change the settings in the KDE panel, or launch krunner, or click on a plasmoid that creates a plasmoid context menu, or many things directly related to plasma-desktop, X suddenly gets 100% load in one core and the screen completely freezes (except for the mouse) for 5+ seconds.
This only happens with the nvidia driver, not the vesa driver, and it happens whether desktop effects are enabled or not. All other applications launch and function fine; it seems to exclusively revolve around plasma-desktop.
Does anyone know what might be causing this behavior?
