There is something very wrong going on when I use Dolphin to move stuff

speed. These tasks can take hours or even days to complete (if ever,

these tasks are not initially restarted, but if I do something like open
the Recycle Bin to see if the files are still in it (after I told
Dolphin to empty the trash) then these processes again kick off and the
CPU usage goes up to 100%. The two (or more) spawned processes of
interest are and However, unlike my original report
and observations, these processes do report very high CPU usage also in
the Process Table tab of KSystemGuard, top, atop, and htop so I am not
100% certain that this is related to the issue I reported - about
something hidden is causing high CPU usage.

Of interest also is doing file moves or deletes from the command line,
i.e. using the mv, rm, and rmdir commands does not cause this high CPU
usage to occur and those commands complete in a reasonable amount of time.

What filesystem?
