Severe thumbnail problems

Ok so I tried to reproduce the problems and here is what I got:

- Set arts to start with no audio i/o.  Opened konqi on a directory, set audio 
and video previews on, and reloaded.

- Xine artsplugin is compiled and installed.

- Lots of CPU being used, processes firing up, and eventually konqi freezes.  
Here is the backtrace:

I look at ps:

Surprise surprise, kio_thumbnail are frozen at:

   If I kill artsd with SIGKILL (only), konqi unfreezes.  IMHO artsd has no 
right to block kde apps.  This needs to be fixed too, or we have to reduce 
dependency on arts.  Finally, artsd should -never- be started if the kcontrol 
module says not to start it.
