As I've already said, this reduces CPU consumption to an acceptable

Now, I've just seen, that _konqueror_ as file manager plays the
"polling game"[tm], too;-)   It "watches" all directories that
are/were accessed in the current session; luckily only the dirs
themselves not their sub-dirs. The CPU load is tolerable (<5%). The
polling interval is the same 500ms _default_ as for kded's setting.

Best regards,

P.S. [OT] to Ralf Habacker: Some of your CC-mails request a receipt.
I wouldn't mind giving them, but I can't pass them through the GMX
SMTP server.
