Thanks for the information, however the intel link is dead. The bugzilla, 
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11418,  link does say something 
about the fact that it is a timer seems to be a problem specifically on amd 
processors, although it does not affect my desktop computer but only my 
laptop which is a newer generation of amd processor.  If you read the 
bugzilla entry it seems to be fixed in the 2.6.27-5 kernel, so a permanent 
solution is on the way.  Thanks again.

Peter
