I'm having this zombie thingy also. But not always. Whenever this happen, most of the time IT TOOK MOST OF MY CPU process time. Yes it is harmless, but thing slowed down without any warning as it can happen any time. I can't kill it, even logging out and back in doesn't help. A re- boot is needed for it to go away.
Do I need this zeitgeist in Gnome Classic? If not how do I get rid of it? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Framework. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/739780 Title: Session starting with a zeitgeist-datahub zombie process Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Fix Released Status in Zeitgeist Datahub: Invalid Status in “zeitgeist” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in “zeitgeist” package in Unity Linux: New Bug description: Binary package hint: zeitgeist To reproduce, either a.)
