    It is. I've been running 2.6 on a dual p2 for quite some time, with good
    results. It is also running with priority 0 under 2.4.

    The problem does not seem interactivity, but some clocks which drift
    apart. The framerate is constantly above 100 fps, there are no
    background daemons/cron jobs running, remote top doesn't show any
    unusual activity. For now, after several reboots and switching back and
    forth between 2.6 and 2.4 it seems to be gone under 2.6. I'll see if it
    comes back again. I guess a 'vmstat 1` snapshot would be good in this case?
