  deja-dup-monitor freezes the computer

Status in deja-dup package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After a fresh install of 13.10, a few minutes after using it (I opened
  several programs), system became very unresponsive, to the point that
  mouse cursor was almost frozen on screen (it would move a few seconds
  after I move the mouse), and doing anything with computer was almost
  impossible. At the same time, I noticed that something is working
  heavily with hard disk (I have 3, and I don't know which one). After
  several minutes of unresponsiveness, I managed to restart the computer
  from console (ctrl+alt+f1; this also took some 30 seconds from
  pressing to actual console screen).

  After the restart, exactly the same has happened. I tried to restart
  several times after that and it was all the same. After a while, I
  installed iotop and found that deja-dup-monitor was making enormous
  disk readings. I killed its process and system became responsive
  again. After that, I disabled autostart for deja-dup-monitor and had
  no problems with it since.

  I don't know why this program behaves as it does, but I think that it
  is unacceptable behaviour, especially on a fresh install. As I
  remember, I had the same experience with my previous install, 12.04
  (removed deja-dup completely).
