Severe thumbnail problems

There are severe problems with the thumbnail code. It seems to launch an
infiinite number of artsd processes and uses 100% cpu load on my laptop,
which I have set to NOT run artsd. So I say to myself, that's ugly, but I
can launch kcontrol and just disable previews. After searching around for a
while, the best I can find are:
1) Something about previews and kioslaves - very confusing gui in general, and
not very useful.
2) KDesktop preview settings - they're all disabled.
So I think, why on earth is it still making these thumbnails. Then I am told
that it is in Konqueror under View->Previews... Why do we have a KControl
module embedded in a menu item that only appears occasionally? This is not
I would like to either see a clean fix for both problems (horrible
configuration method, launching artsd when it should not/using 100% cpu), or
disable audio and video previews by default for 3.1.0. Using 100% cpu in the
background without end is a showstopper as far as I'm concerned.
