My system is showing some weird cpu usage here.
Here are the stats:

Information for Soda
Load: 0.53 0.54 0.54
CPU: 7.7%U 5.7%S 86.6%I
Mem: 61456K Swap: 0K

Xaccel 3.8% R root

xterm 0.1% S root

xterm 0.1% S root
Pager 0.1% S andrejp
irc 0.0% S andrejp

It's been this way as far as xload is able to show it -
minimal current load yet the graph is at 0.5-0.6 all the
time, no cpu intensive tasks running. The machine is a
2.0.30 on a Cyrix166+.

Is there a known problem with cpu usage being high for
no reason?
