udisks2 causes kde freeze


whenever i attach (mount) a usb device or access an nfs share, the kde desktop freezes and becomes totally unresponsive for a while (up to ~15 minutes!). looking at the cpu usage, it shows that the udisks2 daemon eats up all the cpu time.

that only happens under kde!

if i work under icewm, everything works like a charm.

does anyone have any idea what could cause that ‘unfortunate’ behaviour?

any comment would be appreciated…

my system:

  • openSUSE 13.1 64bit (all updates installed)
  • KDE 4.13.1 (from ‘current’ repository)
