I have now installed SUSE 10.1 RC3 and the problem still exists, however the problem still occurs and in a slightly different manner. Now, both events/0 and events/1 in the process table are taking up a lot of cpu time, as if sharing it, which leads me to believe that it has something to do with the processor I have. The Internet yeilds nothing useful, not even an explanation of what they are.
Anyone got any advice? Log files etc I could look in?
