Hello, All !

Working under X and sending about 1.3Mb letter under pine ( pine completed
transferring this to sendmail ) I get a solid slowness - I could hardly move
mouse pointer. Switching to text terminal took about 30 seconds. I don't
know, what kernel was doing ( or what sendmail was doing in the kernel :)
because when I managed to log in on console, speed had returned. mailq said
mail still at spool, so it wasn't network sending...
So what was it ???
