problem with KProcess QT signals

The problem is multiple connects. Check that 
you call connect() only once on existing objects. The connection will persist 
until the object is deleted. But if your object stays alive and that 
slot/function which contains the connect() call is called again, then you 
will connect it again and again and again... every connection means a new 
function call! either use disconnect() or put connect() at a different place. 
If you have further questions can you show some of your code?
