dm-crypt and high cpu load(pdflush)


need help with dm-crypt
i have created a mapping:

Code: -y -h sha256 create crypted /dev/hda2
mount /dev/mapper/crypted /mnt/crypted
when i copy data to this encrypted partition,
pdflush uses every 3-4sec 100% of cpu, and the system hangs short

what could be the problem?
dma is on

if i make a encrypted partition using loop-device -> no problems

slackware 9.1 with 2.6.4
intel 2,6ghz
