gam_server is using 95-98% of cpu time

I'm using kubuntu 5.04 and noticed this morning, running top, that 
gam_server is using most of the cpu.  I tried a cpu intensive program 
and found that it takes much longer on this machine than on a much 
slower Fedora core 3 machine.

Bugzilla has a bug report for this (in redhat) and there was lots of 
activity back in 2004, but I can't find anything definitive on a fix.  
I don't know what gamin or gam_server are nor whether I need them or 
not.

The discussion is at:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=132354

Has anyone else seen this?  If so, is there a fix?

Any help appreciated - bruce
