    I have seen the problem as well.

    It is not just processes using the IDE. Everything will pause for a
    second or two. (Which causes grief with streaming audio running at the
    same time.)

    Even more annoying is that it does not always occur. I have not tried
    tracking down where the kernel is getting hung up at that moment since
    it has been fairly intermittent for me.
