Package: kdebase
Version: 4:3.3.2-1
Severity: normal

Hi, I recently noticed kdm_greet took a long time to run on startup, and 
lsof indicated that kdm_greet was looking at some TrueType font files 
(such as Code2002) for a considerable length of time.

There *may* have been due to some of the TrueType font file names ending 
.TTF rather than .ttf, so I renamed them.

More likely the problem was due to the font-cache being out-of-date. I 
re-ran mkfontscale, mkfontdir and fc-cache against my TrueType fonts 
directory and the slow run of kdm_greet disappeared.

Should kdm_greet generate a warning message if it has to bypass the 

This may have also been a problem caused by installing 
Debian package ttf-mph-2b-damase, 
which I later removed to problems with printing.
