Under "heavy" disk usage (when sylpheed finish merging the lkml
messages in the 92M lkml mail folder) X pointer stops moving
(say, 1/8 or 1/6 seconds, very noticeable, pointer stops, windows stop
redrawing, etc).

System is a dual p3 800; fs is ext3. This odd behaviour
seems to happen since the 2.5.69-mm9 ext3 locking changes.
(well i started testing 2.5.70-mm3 because i'm timid,
but never happened before in mm or mainline)

Sorry that i can't provide really useful information now ;(
