Is this the case for both sessions? It's a limitation of the DRI that it
can only be enabled on one session at a time.

That sounds weird; for one, the DRI mostly makes a difference for
OpenGL, does gravitywars use that? Also, a load of 20 corresponds to 20
processes using as much CPU as they get, which would surprise me with
gravitywars under any circumstances.
