addendum. at ~4:30 when I logged out (and left work for the year), the load
average was 2.99. top showed that the highest cpu usage process was a
netscape at ~5%. I would have looked more, but top segfaulted, and the 30
second keystroke lag was getting to me.
probably a memory leak in a well used program. Netscape maybe?
