Kio_http Spawns Multiple Processes

Hello All:

I’ve narrowed an earlier issue down to a problem with kio_http. This one is much easier to reproduce:

In a KDE session, open Konsole terminal.

In the Konsole session, type a bogus web address. E.g.:

Right click the link and select “Open Link”

In a few seconds you should get multiple notifications on the desktop and several kio_http processes spawned. This notifications keeps on arriving until a “killall kio_http” is issued.
