Public bug report changed:

What kernel are you running? Also, what do you mean by "they are snappy"
when refering to the flight3 live cd's?

I'm pretty sure this is X. I would suspect that all the output scrolling
from find to the screen is causing a lot of interrupts (video, disk) and
that shared interrupts are making things worse.

Try doing "find / > /dev/null" to see if the affect is the same.

Honestly, without some sort of metric, or comparison, I can't really do
anything with this bug report.

I've done some testing on my powerbook (1.6 GHZ) and running find / in
one terminal, and doing a kernel compile in another, my system seems
just as responsive as it always was.
