I've upgraded to lucid. Otherwise it runs quite well, but this I/O
problem is still here or even worse! Now a single apt dist-upgrade (with
30 packages to update or so) made my X frozen (no mouse can be moved,
the music player just repeats a single second, I guess from some kind of
buffer only,  etc) for long minutes. I've managed to switch to text
console (CTRL-ALT-F1) and after login, according to top, the system load
was above 11, and almost all CPU was in "wait" state.

Linux oxygene 2.6.32-12-generic #17-Ubuntu SMP Fri Feb 5 08:14:39 UTC

After end of apt-get, everything returned into the normal way of working
