dbus-daemon is stopping applications from opening


For no reason I can see, dbus-daemon will suddenly begin taking 17% CPU (100% of one core, swapping cores every few seconds), and during this time any attempt to open an application will fail or will be delayed until it's done with whatever it's doing (usually five to twenty minutes). I have no idea how to find out exactly what that is, nor do I have any idea what it's doing. Anyone? This one's extremely aggravating. Running Kubuntu 11.04 if it makes a difference.

On the off chance it'll help, this is the memory dump. Means nothing to me sadly.

Process 1969 - dbus-daemon

Summary

The process dbus-daemon (with pid 1969) is using approximately 28.3 MB of memory.
It is using 28.1 MB privately, and a further 860.0 KB that is, or could be, shared with other programs.
Dividing up the shared memory between all the processes sharing that memory we get a reduced shared memory usage of 144.0 KB. Adding that to the private usage, we get the above mentioned total memory footprint of 28.3 MB.
Library Usage

The memory usage of a process is found by adding up the memory usage of each of its libraries, plus the process's own heap, stack and any other mappings.
