Sounds like a serious bug; can you file a report on our bugtracker so that
we don't lose track of this?

Something you can do in the meantime is to install the kpilot debugging
symbols along with tdelibs-trinity-dbg, then when the daemon goes into its
CPU loop do the following:
1.) Get the PID of the process consuming all the CPU (use top or similar)
2.) gdb --pid <pid obtained above>
3.) thread apply all bt

Once that is done post the output on the bug report; we'll be able to tell
what's going wrong fairly readily.

Posting a full build log would help us determine the actual location of
the fault.  I'm wondering if you are hitting Bug 2215.

Interesting.  Sounds like something else we'll need to test/fix. :-)
