kde, nepomuk and huge ~/.xsession-errors file

I notice that my ~/.xsession-errors file is unusually big, around 123Mb.
If I remove it, it is re-created after I login into my KDE desktop and it reaches that size in a couple of minutes.
I took a look at it using less and it seems that the entire content of an italian big book about linux ("Appunti di informatica libera", by Daniele Giacomini, freely available and distibuted on the net) is being written into it.
I admit I'm puzzled.
This are the relevant lines:

[/usr/bin/nepomukservicestub] "/usr/bin/nepomukservicestub(2119)" Soprano: "SQLExecDirect failed on query 'sparql prefix aneo: <http://akonadi-proje

The entire book follows.
Does someone have any clue about this?

Re: kde, nepomuk and huge ~/.xsession-errors file

That is kind of weird.If you are not nepomuk fan.You can turn it off.Disable nepomuk from desktop search module.
Check in autostart if their is some unusual script starting.Disable if any and remove ~/.xsession-errors and login again.
Otherwise make script like below and add at startup.

#!/bin/sh
# deletes ~/.xsession-errors at startup so it does not write gigabytes of debug info
rm -f ~/.xsession-errors

Re: kde, nepomuk and huge ~/.xsession-errors file

Thanks, I've already disabled nepomuk and the file size is under control now - anyway, I'd really like to know what's going on. So far, I've found nothing.
