Red Hat 8 is great. I use the beta 8.094 and I can honestly say it's a bit buggy. I downgraded two of my machines back to 8.0 because of similar bugs.
Bring on Red Hat 9.0 (a.k.a. 8.1)

Going to init level 1 and then back to init level 5 does NOT restore the machine to its usual speed - I need to do a full reboot.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

The only slightly suspicious logs might be:
12K log/cron
12K log/boot.log

They are a 4k different in each file and indicate that some proccess are being run by the system. Have a look at the logs and see if there is anything suspicous going on.

EDIT: Do you have many cron jobs running?

Nothing unusual about either log file. And I don't use Cron for much anyway.

Silly question - why do I have multiple log files - boot.log, boot.log.1, boot.log.2, cron, cron.1, cron.2, etc?

And while I will certainly update to the non-beta version of RH9 (aka RH8.1) once it becomes available, I think some RH8 (non-beta) users have had memory leaks as well.

logrotate saves the new log and renames yesterdays log.1 two days ago log.2 etc.
