Slow konsole response
I'm having a delay occur when I try to open up a konsole session of about 10 seconds before the prompt comes up into the window and it happens everytime I bring up a konsole terminal window.
I did a strace on the process and came up with the following just as it paused:

open("/etc/passwd", O_RDONLY) = 12
fcntl64(12, F_GETFD) = 0
fcntl64(12, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC) = 0
fstat64(12, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=1508, ...}) = 0
mmap2(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x402a4000
read(12, "root:\353\377mXm8bkjiSre:0:0:root:/roo"..., 4096) = 1508

It pauses at the read(12,
and then completes quite quickly after the 10 second delay at that point.

Has anyone seen this or know what the problem is and how to fix it?
This is a Redhat 8 installation using 2.4.7 kernel

It's most likely a problem with konsole. Does this delay happen for any other terms you try, like xterm or eterm?

Only happens with konsole but unfortunately the users like the konsole and enjoy complaining about it more than using another term :)

I guess I'll try to sell them on the multi-gnome term
