    Peter, I tried on a similar box and couldn't reproduce this problem
    with x86_64 2.6.22-rc3 kernel and using defconfig(has SCHED_SMT turned on).
    I am using top and just the spinners. I don't have gkrellm running, is that
    required to reproduce the issue?

    I tried number of times and also in runlevels 3,5(with top running
    in a xterm incase of runlevel 5).

    In runlevel 5, occasionally for one refresh screen of top, I see three
    spinners on one cpu and one spinner on other(with X or someother app
    also on the cpu with one spinner). But it balances nicely for the
    immd next refresh of the top screen.

    I tried with various refresh rates of top too.. Do you see the issue
    at runlevel 3 too?
