This seems to be related to "udevadm trigger" that snapd does invoke in certain circumstances. Dear reporter: can you please provide us with the name of the snap you removed (so that we have less uncertainty as to our reproduction attempts).

I don't have a solution handy, I would like to understand our use of udev a little bit more. It is possible that some of the operations we perform are not really necessary and can harm the system.

Changed in snapd:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → High

sorry, i have since switched distros to manjaro and it does not have the
same issue.
