Chris, I tried (dbus-monitor 2>&1 ~/dbus.log) as suggested, and got an error:

Can you provide me with clear instructions? I will then load up a set of external data and see if the problem re-occurs.

I've had this problem since upgrading to Jaunty. I've installed tracker-utils and done the tracker-process -r thing, and I've de-selected indexing in system/preferences/search and indexing.

Now I have no problems until I use an external data source, e.g. photos via usb. Then I get the old immortal popup. I can just ignore it and leave it in the background, but the machine does slow down, and eventually I either re-boot or it shuts itself down.

I've yet to try also shutting it out via system/preferences/startup applications.

Here's hoping!
