I think I am seeing those weird ~1 ms latencies still (actually I am not
sure I saw before now):

This was the result of doing `make -j12' with a large C++ program (I
know, I wanted to see what would happen). This gradually slowed the
machine to a crawl - for a while I could watch the /proc/latency_trace
fiels and see the latency gradually climbing. Eventually tha machine
ground almost to a halt, with lots of disk activity., and trying to
switch from X to a console window resulted in a blank screen for 2-3
minutes. I did eventually get a text console and was able to kill all
the cc1plus processes, and the machine went back to normal.

The link above is the highest latency recorded during this episode.
