I thought Vista was bad about splattering dialogs - kde44 takes the cake :p

David C. Rankin
Guys,

        I was quite surprised when 16 nepomuk dialogs splattered themselves across my
screen filling in the display. I was able to kill a few in a valiant effort to
stave off the assault, but I was overrun in the end :-(

        The real pisser? You have to back out of the dialogs in the order they appeared
(another bug that needs resolving) so it was quite a bit more involved than just
clicking the remaining 13 times to close the last 13 nepomuk dialogs. Hunt and
pek ~100 times took care of it.

        There are so many bugs open on nepumuk/Vosotro that it is hard to know which
one to add information to.

        Will, Dotan, Sven, you got a favorite nepomuk bug at bugs.kde.org # you want me
to add the info to?

        God, I'm still chuckling at the "Attack of the killer dialogs...."

'Had some of that after I first upgraded to 4.4.....don't remember now
what I did to get rid of the errors. nepomuk seems to be a combo. of
rocket science and alchemy at this point, so I'm ignoring it. :)

That's why God invented 'pkill'

#! sudo /bin/sh
cd /usr/bin
for i in nepomuk*
do
        echo "exit 1" > $i
done



TA-DA!

Sure: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=217111, which is fixed for KDE SC
4.4.1, which is out tomorrow.  And yes, it annoyed me too.
