gnome-appearance-properties hangs and spins CPU
|Ubuntu Desktop Bugs|
Binary package hint: gnome-control-
Seeing issues with gnome-appearanc
Symptoms are the application will launch, but not appear on screen. CPU will drive up to 80% - 90% utilized. After about 1 - 2 minutes the application will actually open, allowing the user to change their settings.
Doing an strace on this application shows that it's going through /proc/mounts when launching. This is a problem here because we are using autofs5 with ldap and our /proc/mounts file is over 9000 lines long. I've deduced that it's spinning the CPU while trudging through our very large /proc/mounts file and this is why it's taking so long.
