Could it be that all of you upgraded to a newer kernel? 

I'm asking because I had severe performance problems after upgrading from 
2.4.18-pre9-mjc2[1] to 2.4.21-ck3[2]. When compiling something in the 
background I could hardly type in oowriter anymore. I then read the 
2.4.22-pre3 Changelog and saw the comment "We should have increased 
interactivity under heavy IO (users with interactivity problems please test 
and report results).", so recent kernels seem to have problems in that area.

"performance" patches, like O(1), preempt, lock-break and others.

patches and grsec)
