Never seen this, please use a profiler like perf to figure out what is going 
on here.

kdevelop
# wait for it to "settle"
perf record --call-graph dwarf --pid $(pidof kdevelop)
# after ~5s or so interrupt
^C

Then use hotspot of FlameGraph to analyze the data, or look at `perf report` 
directly.

Bye
