P.P.S. (last one;)

To make it cease and desist starving your box, renice the shell you're
running irman from. 12 is the magic (hmm) number here at which starvation

It's interesting to watch the response times irman reports. The higher the
renice level, the better response times it reports both in 2.5.64-virgin,
and 2.5.64-combo (which looks like what is in bk2). /me has no clue
whether that means anything or not ;-)
