I have here a bit the problem that my qube2 seems to be running rather slow. 
I now constantly have a load of 1 till 2 or up, with just a bnc, and a ftp 
( which i almost never use) running.
With bittorent running to share the mirror it went up till 5 followed by a 
total lock-up.
Don't know if more people noticed this ? ( or maybe it's just my fault 
somewhere )

Running the 1.6.2 here :)
