Why is kded taking 98.1% of my CPU?  Here's the top line from
"top" (with some blanks removed):

 6778 vsnyder 25 0 28760 12m 10m R 98.1 0.6 1396:36 kdeinit            

Here's the output from "ps -ef | grep 6778" (with some blanks removed):

vsnyder 6778 1 16 Jul26 ? 23:16:50 kdeinit: kded            

I have KDE version "3.3.1-3.10 Red Hat," running in "Red Hat Enterprise
Linux WS release 4 (Nahant Update 1)"

What does kded do, anyway?  If I kill it, I get my CPU back, and nothing
appears to have gone wrong.
