The current status on my desktop:

10:13am up 3 days, 2:00, 4 users, load average: 24.12, 23.39, 22.22

Whee! And the system is still quite responsive...linux really performs! :-)

For what it's worth, one of these processes seems to get created at almost
every NFS file system mount. Since I'm running in a big networked
environment with amd (and also messing with autofs) I do a fair number of
mounts. Thus the climbing load average.
