Comment 108 for bug 148454

I totally agree on syntag's post. I have from time to time very bad performance inpacts that are caused by consolekit. It eats up many CPU cycles and slows down the whole system remarkably. RAM is not an issue since my system is not swaping while this happens. After I "pkill -9" all the processes the system gets immediatly much more responsive.

I assume that its not because of my hardware is being slow. I have a Intel i920 with four physical cores. As mentioned above, the slowdown is not always the case. It happens only from time to time.
