--- Comment #6 from Kevin Funk <kfunk at kde.org> ---
This needs to be fixed as it also has an impact on battery life.

Note the bad behavior is multiplied by the number of applications using konsole
part. Right now I see tons of open/close events from
yakuake/dolphin/kate/kdevelop on /etc/passwd.

With 2x kdevelop, 1x kate, 1x yakuake with 10x konsole windows I get around 35
OPENs on /etc/passwd per second.

Easy to test:
sudo fatrace -f O -s 10 | grep /etc/passwd | wc -l
