I used to often see CPU load at 100%, and for more than a few seconds
(indefinitely?), and IIRC, top showed that it was DBUS / HAL (I don't
recall exactly which process it was, and I don't have a very good
understanding of DBUS / HAL). Doing something like '/etc/init.d/dbus
restart' would drop the load back to normal. I don't think I've seen
the problem recently. Currently at 2.6.25.
This is an Acer Aspire 3690-2672, Celeron M 420 @ 1.6 GhZ.
