swap is enabled but not used by artsd (only 8 MB for X and some kdeinit stuff)

OK, I moved my video and sound files to one of my "older" IBM DDRS-9GB UW
disks (read max ~12.8 MB/s).

Did NOT help. With and without renice -20.
Same hiccup (0.5~3 sec) during the first few seconds of dbench. The hiccup
ONLY occur at the beginning of every dbench run.
