Glad to hear it, because I was wondering why I couldn't reproduce. I was
building sqlite from ports, running 15 browser windows in each firefox and
konqueror , 5 instances of hangman, and 20 OpenOffice docs and seeing
nothing. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how any normal desktop
type load could hit that.
It was starting to feel like that XKCD comic...
