Mutex fails when running Kedit from Konsole

I often pop a root term to edit a config file or something as needed, or try stuff. So I would do like:

[root@localhost xxxx]# kedit [file-to-edit] &


[root@localhost xxxx]# kedit [file-to-edit]

Well, after I exit kedit, quite a few seconds later, this happens:

[root@localhost xxxx]# Mutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy

And I have to press ENTER to get the shell prompt back.

Does anyone know what that means and how to fix it?
