It's a bug in MySQL. Look at the PRI column in the top output and notice
that many of the MySQL threads have very low priority, meaning that they'll
only run when the system is ~idle. I think someone was going to file a bug
report with the MySQL people but I don't know if that ever happened. We
should at least disable this in pkgsrc.

You won't notice this problem with NetBSD 4.0 or revivesa because neither
is realtime capable.
