It turns out doing intensive disk operations was at least one cause of
the problem.  However, during the time that there were no reported
idle jiffies, system+user+nice jiffies didn't add up to 100 per second
as they should.  Even though everything has returned to normal, I
wonder why the system seemed to be losing track of what the CPU was
