That's probably the culprit right there.  Something is wrong if you
have 1200 pending compactions.

This is something that upgrading to trunk will help with right away
since we parallelize compactions there.

Another thing you can do is increase the memtable limits so you are
not flushing + compacting so often with your insert traffic.
