You might be right, I think I confused myself, because I copied the wrong 
section of log file. It could explain why things were playing up if the wrong 
kernel was loaded, but now I'm at a loss.

I'm trying to figure out why sometimes my machine enters a super slow mode, 
i.e. things that require fraction of a second to execute, take 20-30 seconds.

I'm going to clear all my logs, start from the beginning and send another 
message to the list when I have more information.
