console-kit-daemonhigh cpu usage
« on: May 12, 2010, 05:09:02 pm »
What is everyone doing to combat high cpu usage on console-kit-daemon ?   I can't find a proposed or security fix for 8.10, but jaunty and later seem to have them.

   SSH sessions and samba connections can be the catalyst for causing the high CPU usage.
  The problem can be reproduced easily with # while `true`; do ssh localhost exit; done;

   I have  installed these modules and currently testing, have not seen any leaks or increased cpu usage after 3 hours. Steady at 1%.

# sudo apt-get install libck-connector-dev libdbus-1-dev libck-connector0 libdbus-1-3 libpam-ck-connector

This is what I have installed after the udpates.
