I don't think its the hard drive throughput, as the various parameters are
set at boot time, and I don't think that they would change between
root/non-root users. But, it never hurts to check. Who knows what evil
lurks under the hood. 

As for the process monitor thingy: I'll check that out when I get home,
too. I know for sure that there's a CPU load window in plain X. But, I
don't know if a high CPU load would tell me more than I already know.
