I second this, it also happens when starting totem within KDE.
I start totem (accedentaly, since I never use it really), something starts
changing the background to the default blue picture, repeatedly, every 30
seconds or so. I open the KDE desktop settings, and my old background is
still considered to be "active", but it isn't what I see. I switch it off and
back on, apply, and KDE puts my background back on the screen. It doesn't
last long, though --- after several seconds it is changed again to default
I also see firefox to crash. Don't know about the screensaver, I use none.
Once totem has been run, this annoying bahavior stops if I logout and login
back, ie. restart KDE. But only until next run of totem.
Any help on this appreciated.
