I don't run knode, but I do have amarok running most of the time.
I'm seeing xorg take up an entire core, even when amarok is
not playing anything. This seems to be semi-random - at first
it appeared to happen after several hours, but I've seen it on
a re-start of kdm a few times now.
Are you seeing lots of file system activity while amarok or
knode is slowing you down? lsof might reveal some extra info,
if you are.
