Hmm. I haven't seen that happen (except for some issue with 
gnunet-insert-mp3). Which processes? Some time CPU eating by gnunetd on 
startup (generation of the hostkey) is ok.

Sure. Sorry if I was rude, I'm just a bit stressed at the moment (exam time). 
And that bug has been proven particularily nasty :-)

Well, the network is still fairly small (usually I see 2-4 hosts online at a 
time, ls -l ~/.gnunet/data/hosts, look at the timestamps).

mp3 is a bad keyword because it would (once the system works) return far too 
many results. Thus gnunet-insert-mp3 will NOT automatically generate that 

In terms of development, we're currently more trying out to see on which 
platforms we compile (e.g. there are known issues with big-endian 
architectures). Also we need a better scheme for automatic keyword 
extraction from files because it is unrealistic that people will type
in lots of keywords manually for each file they make available. Once
that is coded, I would expect to see some content to become available. For 
now, it's more a toy-network for experiments with data that is inserted into 
local test-networks. 

There may also be performance issues (e.g. how does ext2 behave if
data/content contains 1 million 1k files? Use reiserfs? database?);
GNUnet is not really ready for the masses yet.
