I just noticed the load on my machine is unusually high. The wierd thing
is that its not doing anything. Top says this:

load averages:  2.11,  2.13,  2.09				22:12:51
28 processes:  1 running, 27 sleeping
CPU states:  0.3% user,  0.0% nice,  0.0% system,  0.0% interrupt,  100% idle
Memory: 9584K Act, 2124K Inact, 248K Wired, 42M Free, 4K Swap, 64M Swap free

Looking over the %CPU from ps -ef says everything is pretty 0.0%. Same
thing from top when I sort by CPU. The system doesn't seem sluggish

So why is the load so high?
