So, I'm sorry for this false alarm. It is definetly not Kima's problem and it seems to be caused by something in Kicker's applet management. - May 22 2007
I placed Kima on my panel and now kicker consumes about 200kB of memory every second so after 30 minutes of running Kicker with Kima uses almost 400MB of RAM.
I dropped Kima from panel, no effect. After killing kicker and starting it again - the consumption continued.
Then I restarted my computer and after that kicker (without Kima) is OK.
So I waited for few hours and I tryed to run Kima again and moments after that - the memory consumption started again and again - stopped after restart of X with Kicker without Kima.
Where could be the problem?
I have Gentoo with KDE 3.5.6 and Kima 0.7.1 - May 16 2007

Thanks :) - May 21 2007
Hello. I am using Transkode as Amarok script to shrink size and convert files before transferring them to my media device (Creative Zen V Plus). I have no problems doing it until I try to transfer music with tags with "secial" characters from UTF-8 (like ľščťžýáíé).

I think it is caused by the player - it doesn't understand them in filenames. The original filenames are without them bud Transkode names new files after tags so it adds them.

I think that it would be nice to add another function in Naming scheme - something like de-internationalize - which would just "convert" those characters to ASCII (like "č" => "c", "á" => "a" and so). Would that be possible?

Thanks! - May 20 2007
