I know the cause of this freeze problem, but I have not idea what the fix is at
this point. The problem occurs because a QProcess started by
KMimeTypeRepository::sharedMimeInfoVersion to determine the version number of
the update-mime-database tool never finishes successfully. Instead it times out
after the default 30 sec period on the waitForFinished call. After that there
is an additional 30 sec. freeze because QProcess finds out it has still not
finished running and attempts to wait yet again before it kills the process. 

We need to figure out what is causing such a simple command not finish
executing, but I doubt that would be done before the 4.6 release. Anyhow, I
have attached the relevant portion of the backtrace...
