Just got the same problem with 3.4.0 and yorches's suggestion seems to work for me so far.

Worked for me too, thanks. I'm also running 3.4 and my problem started after I went in to add a new file association. Just an innocuous change (associating .sxc to OpenOffice) caused this to start happening. Weird. Anyway, thanks for the solution.

muzhogg: Seems your solution of setting hidden to false has fixed the issue for me.

finally solved it for me

I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy. But looking at this forum I found the solution. In the ~/.kde/share/mimelnk/application I had 2 files apart from the octet... one. I had created associations with the control center for fcheck and maya. The problem arose after doing this. I deleted those associations in the control center, but it did not delete the files. I simply deleted these 2 files (fcheck.desktop and maya.desktop) and the problem went away.

Haven't logged out and back in again, so will report when I do.

I had the same problem.
It also cause a kdeinit process to hang up and almost block the processor.
I believe that the /tmp/kde-user/ksycoca explanation/fix is misleading. Comparing with other users (who didn't have the problem), they had no file
~/.kde/share/mimelnk/application/octet-stream.desktop
In contrast, I had. Removing this file solved the problem.
(Afterwards, I also removed the /tmp/kde-user/ksycoca, as removing something in /tmp should generally rather help than harm, therefore I don't know if this was necessary or not. As a matter of fact, the file was recreated.)

mime-type error fixed

I had mime-type error while starting k3b. Turns out I have upgraded system (Gentoo) to KDE 3.4, but startx still pointed to and started 3.3. After I changed startx to 3.4 error went away.
