Default gnome-panel using way to much CPU

Hi all,

Gnome-panel is taking way too much CPU. Has anyone else experienced
this or got a fix? Any ideas appreciated.
Snapshot below!

Thanks,

John

Are you using networked home folders? *We had a lot of problems with Gnome panel when we had networked home folders.

Hi Steve,

Home isn't networked but there is a directory sitting in home that is
via nfs. Do you have any insight into why networked folders might
cause an issue? I am thinking about simply killing Gnome-panel
periodically since it seems to respawn in a well behaved manor. Still
looking into this...

Thanks!

All I can say is that when we had Networked home folders certain apps would cause problems, and Gnome panel was one of them. *We did periodically search for zombie gnome-panel processes and kill them, but for us it didn't go away until we went away from the networked (nfs) home. *I don't really know if this is the issue in your case...!

Thanks for the pointer. Here's a strange thing though, I did apt-get
remove compiz and it removed the compiz package, but compiz was still
in /usr/bin/ and it still ran when a user logged in.

the dpkg log says:

2011-04-18 08:55:21 status installed compiz 1:0.8.4-0ubuntu15
2011-04-18 08:55:26 remove compiz 1:0.8.4-0ubuntu15 1:0.8.4-0ubuntu15

2011-04-18 08:55:27 status not-installed compiz <none>


and apt-get remove compiz returns:

Package compiz is not installed, so not removed

I ended up chmoding /usr/bin/compiz to 700 and logging back in. Then
compiz didn't start. I am going to use this for a while
before i put it into production.

Thanks again for your help!
