[RDD] RDAirplay froze, gam_server?

I read up what I could find on this before writing the email and all the
info is old. The bug was reported over 10 years ago and the fixes are old.
I hesitate to apply them and I haven't been able to figure out yet how to
change the polling. Several sites suggest fsset but that is not a legit
command in centos and I can't seem to find one. I can kill the process but
it comes right back - 100% CPU every few seconds.

This is a recent event for us- in the last couple weeks since updating
everything, but it does not show up on the servers that also run centos 6.7
with Gnome.  I'm at a loss as to what to do. I can't have it freezing
Airplay. A reboot seems to help for about 12 hours.
