I thought about that :) ; according to pamlipsest the disk is healthy
and has passed all tests.

the dns setup both at home as at work is solid (I'm a sysadmin, so
yes, I know). I fail to see how dns should have local graphical logins
slow down randomly, to be honest. Could you care to ellaborate?

As to disk i/o, nope, it's nearly non-existent. I can logon a vt and
start top and the system is idle.

Any other ideas?
