My computer has been experience some weird issues. Doing almost any simple operation in a significant application like Sarafi results in the appearance of the colour wheel of death. Most of the time (When not running Flash), it sits there for a bit then goes away. Sometimes it's seconds, sometimes longer.
Doing a bit of probing, this kind of thing seems to be happening quite a bit:
user 24289 3.7 11.9 632120 249120 ?? S 2:49PM 12:15.50 /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari -psn_0_2146828
I've been reading ps outputs for awhile on other UNIXes, but doesn't this say that a process started 7ish hours ago has used 12.25 hours of CPU time?
I know the machine is dual-core, but seriously? There have been a couple of times when this was worse, and it showed a total CPU time that was more than 2x the time difference between the current time and the start time, and earlier it was for Adium, not Safari.
Any ideas what's going on?
