I also use estd to dymamically throttle down the cpu freqency when the

From what nia@ tells me (and this is also in the guide: section 11.1.4.),
you shouldn't need estd at all:

    Many modern hardware supports an "automatic adjustment" frequency,
    usually this will be a reported frequency that ends in 1. On systems
    without this functionality, sysutils/estd can be installed from
    pkgsrc to perform automatic adjustment depending on load in software,
    although it will be less efficient than hardware scaling.

Just disable estd. I used to run it to cool my CPU before I learnt
this (and it does--by about a measly 5 C or so).
