SubjectBlocked processes <=> Elevator starvation?

I reported this problem before but didn't get any answers so I'm posting

After starting 2 processes that scan a lot of files (diff, find,
slocate, ...) it's impossible to run any other processes that touch
the disk, they will stall until one of the first two stop. Could this be
a sign of starvation in the elevator code?

This is a UP machine, 64 Mb, IDE disks, kernel 2.4.0-test9 (final). If I
can help with further details just ask.
