Opensuse 11.4 - x64

I've tried with 2 kernel flavors - one is the default with tickrate 250,
the other one is optimised for desktop and uses tickrate 1000

same effect.

Medium is hdd, ext4 native.
I've also opened a thread on nvnews, I'll see if someone else is  
experiencing this and if it
is driver related.

Though I'll try running with some safe kernel parameters, since you gave  
me an idea
about kernel (maybe limiting to only one core, nohz...).
