    There are no AS patches missing in vanilla. I don't think there are..
    none that would change that.

    Its unlikely that its an IO problem because its unlikely that your tar
    would be evicting anything that X or the xterm depend on. If the
    machine is swapping at this time then try setting /proc/sys/vm/swappiness
    to 0.

    Oh, you could try my cpu scheduler patch a try if you're bored.
