Yes, I'm also seing this. As Jason Thorpe reports that he doesn't see it
and he doesn't use Amigas this makes me think that this is maybe
a NetBSD/amiga problem (I'm running NetBSD/amiga on an A2000 with IVS

The problem started sometime in 1.0A when there was a bigger change
in "ps" (or was it libkvm, I don't remember exactly what it was).

It always happens when there is much disk activity and when ps slows
down. And I also don't know why there is a disk access after EVERY
SINGLE line that ps prints.
