Comment 38 for bug 148454

nobody has shed some light as to what is wrong with console-kit-deamon spawning 60 threads. Until we can't define what's wrong with it this can't be considered a bug.

Of course there were some statements regarding system resources that get eaten up by those threads but except from memory they were really vague and unfounded. Regarding memory usage, although I'm not an expert, I know enough to understand that taking the 0.2% per thread, that htop reports under the MEM% heading, and multiplying by 60 to arrive to the conclusion that CKD eats up 12% of your RAM is far from a safe assumption
