Public bug reported:

plasma-desktop freezes for 5 long minutes after login. Earlier, it used
to be that digikam froze for 5 minutes after it had been launched.
Unsetting the option "Scan for new items at startup (makes startup
slower)" did not help. That bug was present in Kubuntu 11.10 on. Now
that behavior of digikam is gone, i.e. it starts without delay (it used
to show "reading database" for 5 minutes). Exactly the same time is now
spent by plasma-desktop after login on reading the subdirectory tree
where I keep my photos managed by digikam. This can be seen by
repeatedly running lsof from the text console. I supect why plasma-
desktop behaves that way, but I'm afraid that if I write so, my
information will be censored just like it happened on Ubuntu Forums. The
situation with plasma-desktop and digikam exhibits some parallels with
kmail, to give you the clue. The bug manifested itself for the first
time at the end of 2011, but I first suspected my unintensional changes
in some configuration files. It is not a problem in my configuration
