kdeinit: kded 78% cpu usage

For the past few days my system has taken a long time to boot itself then when it does kdeinit:kded eats up all my resources.

a ps aux shows :

6281 78.4 2.3 25208 12376 ? R 11:46 0:57 kdeinit: kded

When I kill this process I get a message informing me that kde mountwatcher is now not running.

I am almost sure its something to do with my new usb epson printer/scanner, but what is going on ? why is it using all my system resources ? killing is a quick fix but I would like advice on how to investigate and fix this problem.

Can anyone help. ?

many thanks.

Try removing the epson, reboot and wait until everything's up before replugging it.

Thanks but this is another "quick fix"

This surely shouldn't be happening and I would like help to get to the root of the problem.

Something else to add also, when i first used the epson Mandrake created a device icon on my desktop "hard disk" (usb mass storage)

This is, I assume, because the epson printer has a card reader. but now the icon has gone along with the cd and dvd icons ??

Again I'm assuming this is because I killed mountwatcher.....but im not sure.

something not right thats for certain.
