Description Dmitriy Styazhkin 2010-01-17 07:25:51 UTC
I faced with dbus-daemon memory leak problem, when I made some customization of superkaramba widget. In few word, I added an Amarok playback monitoring by providing to me output of next command, which is constantly implementing, with short interval:

artist=`qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player GetMetadata | grep -m1 artist: | cut -c 9- | sed -e 's/.*/\U&/'`;[ `echo $artist | wc -c` -lt 27 ] && echo $artist || echo `echo $artist | cut -c -19`...

title=`qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player GetMetadata | grep -m1 title: | cut -c 7- | sed -e 's/^[ \t]*//'`;[ `echo $title |  wc -c` -lt 25 ] && echo $title || echo `echo $title | cut -c -19`...

album=`qdbus org.kde.amarok /Player GetMetadata | grep -m1 album: | cut -c 7- | sed -e 's/^[ \t]*//'`;[ `echo $album |  wc -c` -lt 25 ] && echo $album || echo `echo $album | cut -c -19`...

Then I found that it cause endless raise of dbus-daemon memory usage. I stop usage of this widget, but I think, that it's bug. I've attached this widget to the report.

You haven't; could you correct that, please? :-)

Is this still reproducible with the latest version (dbus 1.4.1, or a later commit from the dbus-1.4 branch in git)?

(If the widget performs those commands in a tight loop with no delay, then it'll hog your CPU, so you wouldn't want to use it anyway.)
