system-tools-backends abuses the timers in a big way

Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: system-tools-backends

20 wakeups per second from the system-tools-backends perl script.

caused by this line in /usr/share/system-tools-backends-2.0/scripts/

Net::DBus::Reactor->main->add_timeout (50, Net::DBus::Callback->new(method => \&Utils::Monitor::do_monitor_files));

every 50 milliseconds. crikey!

since ubuntu doesn't even have Sys::Gamin, this results in a call to a handler that returns immediately (so it's entirely useless).

a fix for this problem is to comment that line out.
