Well, I can reproduce it locally just by asking for the manuals
with flood:

jerenkrantz@walla% uptime
 8:05PM  up 11:51, 3 users, load averages: 22.64, 9.35, 3.76

Looking further into it now.  Of interest in the top output is that
a lot of process are "Mutex" wait.  I need to double check nothing
is using NFS first though.  All of the time is sys time calls.
Looks like this is what daedalus is seeing...  -- justin
