Using KDE 3.3.0 I can reproduce this 100% of the time
#kfind and search for ANYTHING and it locks up hard.
# killall famd
and try again and Kfind works fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure famd is running
2. perform a search of the root (or any directory really) using kfind
3. kfind process locks hard
oddly, running find from the Konqueror menu works fine - but from the KDE menu
it happens almost immediately (If not, one or two searches will demonstrate this
OK after 2 weeks of trying I guess this is a known bug by the KDE team - the
Redhat team has apparently fixed it but I can't find details.
Here is more details of others with the problem...
Closing as UPSTREAM as this is not Gentoo related.
