I have a feeling that this is already a known thing, but here goes: If you
run the df command and the current working directory has been removed, the
df CPU consumption skyrockets, but it never displays anything. I'm not
sure what version I have, but it's the version that's included with the
Slackware 3.0 distribution. It say it's from GNU fileutils 3.12 if that
