Bug Description

2.6.32-24-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 19 01:38:40 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Shutter 0.86.3

As far as i can understand, its a feature related to the possibility to publish screen shots to ubuntuone, problem is, that starting shutter triggers ubuntuone launch also, even when we select not to use it. Not very good if you are using a laptop or net-book on low battery...

Due to bug,
there is no alternative in lucid lynx, but uninstall shutter.

  Maybe I am wrong, but nautilus triggers ubuntuone-syncdaemon as well
(the first time nautilus is used). This does not mean that u1 starts
syncing any files. It doesn't use any CPU cycles either.

If ubuntuone is removed from startup applications,
only opening ~/Ubuntu One folder, launches it.
Seems related to shutter behavior...
In fact, no syncing takes place, but hashing local files, creates the problem.
Hashing is much more cpu intense than syncing...
...syncdaemon it's in LOCAL RESCAN stage, which involves hashing your files, so you'll see a lot of CPU activity.

I choose to sync my 5 GB Ubuntu One folder only when on power.

Fix: Shutter triggers u1 when the related notebook page is activated for the first time - not on startup.
