Starting Feb 11, my Ubuntu 10.10 desktop respawns FileManager many times(hundreds). You can observe the "Starting File Manager" processes at the bottom of the gnome desktop.

I can make this behaviour stop by: System -> Preferences -> Ubuntu One -> Services -> uncheck "Files".

Can someone walk me though the debug process?

Linux 2.6.35-25-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 21 17:40:48 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

I'm trying to reset the Ubuntu One configuration. I found good information here:

Look for "ROOT_MISMATCH in syncdaemon.log"

After running through the steps to reset and restart UbuntuOne, no more "Starting File Mangager" respawns.
