yeah, I do too normally (gentoo)

On one of my boxes (dual p3 933) I didnt have an idle problem, but as soon
as 1 person joined, it would stay around 30% even if I was jsut standing

This new kernel extremely stripped down doesnt have that issue anymore
either.  Barely shows up on my process list w/ just me in it, and when a
second person joined, barely showed up as well.

So you might give it a shot regardless ;/  This is all going back to
andreas' lan testing w/ 17 players he said barely making the cpu sweat...
