What? When? Why? Whatever?
I think that my two home systems could have been affected: my desktop (i3, two cores) started consuming a whole core whenever I started Firefox or Chrome, for whatever reason. When I shut down both then it went to normal. And again when I started any of them, CPU spikes.
My SheevaPlug just stopped responding to certain commands,
df -h worked while
free yielded an I/O error after a while. Not a common occurrence; I had to restart it and it went fine.
Does this bug solve both mysteries (happening at about the right time IIRC), or am I retconning the solution?
