kio_thumbnail eats user CPU
I often have to work in folders where I keep a lot of files (6780 fonts anyone?) and so I decided it was reasonable to turn off font previews (and all others) in konqueror using the KDE 3.2.2 config.
I no longer get any previews yet I constantly grind to a halt as a result of up to a hundred instances of kio_thumbnail.
Not afraid to edit text or find a way to automatically kill any instances of kio_thumbnail but I really need to get my productivity back online.
