Sure, can you tell me what is the port it belongs to? Or is it the
/usr/local/libexec/upowerd of


that you mean? It used to core dump but now (or at least so far) it's

I don't have a kde4 desktop on this machine but will get it next week
so I can see if it's working with kde4 as well (or if someone has it
and can test).
