#574: New users: Menu auto-refresh every 4 seconds on LXDE
 Reporter:  TWiN           |      Owner:  tim
     Type:  System Defect  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  critical       |  Milestone:
Component:  User Manager   |    Version:  9.0-RELEASE
 Keywords:  LXDE           |
 I installed 9.0 REL (32 and 64) on a new computer, the main user called
 admin created via the installation program works great.

 I opened the user management and created a new user, logged in using LXDE
 and the main menu refreshes every 4 seconds.

 The only way to stop the refresh is to open the terminal and
  - chmod 000 ~/.cache/menus

 naturally if I do this, once I restart the computer the menu is empty.

 doing a "ps awwx" I was able to catch a /usr/local/libexec/menu-cache-gen
 process running each time that the menu refreshes.

 I tried to killed various processes but I was not able to find the
 culprit, sometime killing pc-controlpanel and menu-cache fix the problem
 until the computer restarts, other times there are multiple pc-

 While the problem is present, the system update doesn't recognize any
 updates and it runs extremely slow.

 I am able to replicate it every time on different computers and CPU.

 I also tried to create 2 different users during the installation, and it
 works correctly

 KDE works without problems
