I am impressed with Debian!

It's happened to me before (under hamm, but not slink) and it was find running.

I don't why it ran find but it was a pain in the ass.

I haven't had the problem for a while.

May be there's some process running that lokks for something in a default loctaion and then if it can't get it there forks a find to try to locate it.

I suspected TkDesk when this happened to me, but that could have been unfounded.

caveat: this may have nothing to do with the problem you have!

It sounds like a 'cron' job was running.
