[PlanetCCRMA] ZynAddSubFX problems still unresolved on F7/F8 with KDE

Sorry to come back with this unresolved problem, which appears to be specific 
to KDE on F7, and F8 now.

Starting Zyn from KDE's desktop results in 100% CPU useage, mouse pointer is 
difficult to move. Clicking on minimize on Zyn's main window reduces CPU 
useage to normal. Clicking on a child window in Zyn, then clicking on 
minimize, Zyn minimizes to the panel, and the child window opens, and I can 
make changes to various parameters, etc.

With Zyn's main window open on KDE, I click on close, then minimize. Zyn 
minimizes to the panel, and the small window opens on KDE saying "Exit and 
leave the unsaved data" "Yes or No". That works ok, and clicking on yes, Zyn 
shuts down.

I have never had problems like this before with Zyn on KDE. On FC1 to FC5 on 
this machine, no problems, neither with Debian, Slackware, Kubuntu, or Gentoo 
on the same machine.

Can anyone verify if they see the same problems using ZynAddSubFX on F7, and 
F8, and specifically using KDE. Fernando has already said that with Gnome on 
F7 there are no problems with Zyn, and I verified that on the machine that 
has F7. Havn't tried Zyn with Gnome on F8 yet, but I expect it to work, as on 

In many ways I'm not too bothered, as Zyn works well on FC2, but I'd like 
discover what is causing these problems on F7, and F8 with KDE.

Any suggestions/help appreciated.
