Dbus issues

I think I may have found part of the issue ... plugin-container places
a very heavy load on the system.  When a user goes to a site which is
using flash, it seems that plugin-container will launch and that then
starts to place a very heavy load on the system.  I found a discussion
here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plugin-container_and_out-of-process_plugins

I have disabled plugin-container and the system is back to its
typical, acceptable performance.
