    Well 2.6.18 seems to keep popping up as the last kernel with "sane"
    behaviour, at least in terms of not causing huge delays under many
    workloads. I currently run 2.6.26, although that could be updated as
    soon as I get around to figuring out why lirc isn't working for me when
    I move past 2.6.26.

    I could certainly try changing the scheduler on my mythtv box and seeing
    if that makes any difference to the behaviour. It is pretty darn obvious
    whether it is responsive or not when starting to play back a video.
