Description bofh 1999-10-13 08:01:50 UTC
Pressing the back and forward buttons between two ftp directories uses
up more and more unix domain sockets and kioslave processes:

$ /usr/sbin/lsof | grep kioslave | grep unix | wc -l

4 back and forward button pressings later:

$ /usr/sbin/lsof | grep kioslave | grep unix | wc -l

$ ps auxw | grep kioslave | wc -l

This is on a single user system.

Closing that kfm window doesn't close the sockets.

Try the url and press on the bin URL for example.

When the unix domain sockets are used up, the X server can't accept any
more local X clients and it becomes hard to figure out what is wrong...

kde 1.1.2 has fixed this problem.  Please upgrade your KDE RPMs to the ones
included in 6.1, or upgrade your system completely.
