Yes, this bug is known (see kfm-devel) and I even did a fix on Thursday. 
However, it does not work for me---KIO::probably_slow_mounted _always_ 
returns false! The problem is, I have to do a presentation tomorrow, so I 
didn't find the time to debug this issue yet. I'll fix it Monday or Tuesday, 
promised :-) Maybe it will then even make it into KDE 3.1.

Yes, please see kfm-devel.

No, this is wrong. The solution is to move the item into cache and to stop 
watching it.

I don't know of any. KIO::probably_slow_mounted does this using mtab, but as I 
said, there are problems somewhere. Please be patient ;->
