Same here. Using reiser filesystem for partitions. Laptop with pentium M
processor. I can see that gam_server uses 99.9% cpu then I start amaroK
but after some seconds it drops to normal 0.4% during playtime. Here
comes the weird part: sometimes gam_server uses more than 80% for no
reason (e.g. amarok is in system tray and not used) and quitting amaroK
doesn't help. During this odd behaviour gam_server apparently writes
repeatedly "invalid lenght <some numbers>" into ~/.xsession-errors.
