Subject Re: High CPU usage as of 8pm eastern time

Thank you for the mail. Same here, but I restarted the affected server 
before I noticed your mail.

It affected both OpenJDK Java 6  (packaged with Ubuntu 10.04) and Oracle 
Java 7 processes. Ubuntu 32 bit servers had no issues, only a 64 bit 

Likely it is related to the leap second introduced today.
