gconfd-2 maxing out CPU
I've tried several versions of both ORBit2 and GConf, but the issue persists. Whenever I load a program that uses gconfd-2 (firefox, eye of gnome, nautilus etc), the program starts, maxes out both of my CPU cores, and starts eating up RAM slowly and steadily. The program I was trying to load will lag too much and never open.
I've since removed execute permissions from /usr/local/libexec/gconfd-2, and am putting up with errors everytime I load programs that use it, but they run nonetheless.
I'm not sure how to go about fixing this, seeing as I've already attempted installing/uninstalling upgrading/downgrading my program versions. I'm using Slackware 12.1 and openbox.
