Now from home when I (by chance) move the mouse pointer inside "Print System -> KDE Print System" whole "kde" freezes. (shown with ***)
Print SYstem -> KDE Print system ***
During this freeze (Alt-F2 doesnot work or I cannot launch a konsole to kill anything)
I have a gkrellm and it does not show any spike in CPU and GTK applications (firefox, gkrellm) work fine. Only way to recover for me is to shift to "Console" Ctrl-Alt-F1 and kill KDE and relogin.
The workaround is: If I start kprinter from a konsole (commandline) after coming home, kprinter window is a bit frozen (initializing) but then after a few seconds it comes alive. Now change "Print system currenty used -> LPR..."
After this kmenu -> Print System will not freeze entire KDE.
