    Nope. It occurs in 4.4/4.5 in Kubuntu and Debian Squeeze. Obviously we are talking about 4.6, but I provided that as an example of how drivers can and do screw up the KDE experience and how it is not the KDE devs fault.
    This is now fixed.

      Yeah, right. In what universe? For example, just move cursor over places in dolphin, and you will kill 3GHz single core processor. Funny things, isn't 4.6 supposed to be performance optimization release?
      Long story short, ridiculously slow kde4 is getting even slower and slower.

        I can move the cursor all over the place in dolphin without any jump in cpu usage.

          Early impressions for 4.6beta1 on an Acer Aspre One netbook are that it's actually pretty smooth. I'd say better than 4.5 anyway.

          Using the Compiz benchmark while running Ubuntu 10.10 this machine was getting about 62.4 fps
          Using the Kwin benchmark while running Kubuntu 10.10 + 4.6b1 it was reporting about 33.5 fps

          Although the frame rate is reportedly a fair bit less while running kwin this machine still feels smooth and snappy (for a netbook that is)

          After I'm through getting an idea of how KDE is at the moment the next thing I'll be doing will be to switch to KDE 4.6b1 on Compiz and see how that goes.

                    Are you kidding me? Sort by CPU, not user name, any devices in places? Is this KDE 4.6?

                      I have 8GB of RAM, but nothing related to mtrr shows up on dmesg (using Arch x64). Besides, this seems to appear on Intel IGPs - I'm using a Nvidia card.

                        Anyone having trouble with their machine pausing for a few seconds after displaying a windows preview thumbnail when mouse overing a windows entry in the titlebar

                            The icon set that I use is MIB Ossigeno (I know you found it but I thought I would post which it is anyways).

                            As far as Ktorrent going it goes 24/7 seeding openSUSE, my openSUSE spinoffs that were created with susestudio and the unigine torrents.
