Wow! Thanks, Marcelo. If this is indeed the cause of the performance
problems I've been seeing, this will save me many agonizing hours. I
never suspected emacs in these problems, but I've certainly seen
distnoted turn into a complete CPU hog. I have emacs running all the
time, so if that's the cause, this will be a huge relief.
