Seems whatever it was that caused this problem was fairly short-lived... so it
may have been cron. It seemed only to affect the konqueror web browser &
kget, however. Kget quit responding & the browser was sluggish. Firefox
loaded fairly quickly, as always. I'll keep my eye on 'top' (no pun
intended) to see what I can learn. Thanks!
