Bug Description

After starting Kontact (nepomuk and strigi enabled) virtuoso-t process constantly eats 48-50% of CPU -- which means that it might have 1 core only for itself.

virtuoso-t wastes lots of CPU time on my 6-core machine. Particularly, it utilised multiple cores. I am using 64-bit Kubuntu Oneiric, with updates to KDE 4.8.0. This problem exists since the update to KDE 4.8.0.

This now happens very frequently and continously empties my laptop battery and is very annoying when working mobile:
Kontact won't shut down Akonadi when you quit it so I always have to terminate it manually via commandline.

Can someone please start working in this issue OR modify Kontact to terminate Akonadi when exiting? If Kontact did tell Aknoadi to shutdown when Kontact is shutdown, it would at least be possible to end the CPU usage through the UI.
