KDE 3.1 floods terminal with "dirty /etc/mtab" warnings

Hey list. I finally got around to compiling KDE 3.1 about 2 weeks ago on 
my most recent LFS, and it seems to be working correctly for the most 
part, but with one problem. Whenever I run a KDE application (such as 
konqueror, kwrite, kcalc, etc) the console I launch it from gets this 
message echoed to it about once a second:

kio (KDirWatch): KDirWatch-3 emitting dirty /etc/mtab

This goes on as long as any KDE app is running, and persists for about 
10 seconds after the last one is closed. This isn't critical bit it is 
pretty annoying. Has anyone else experienced this? Anyone have a solution?
