Lately, with factory, I've noticed that my machine sometimes comes to a halt.
This happens when there's a lot of disk i/o (installing a virtual machine in
VirtualBox, doing zypper dup etc).
Applications such as Firefox and Evolution takes ages to respond to anything.

I don't know if might be a hint
to what's happening.

The machine is a quad core with 8gb of memory and SATA3 drive.

Attaching hwinfo

Also, I've see the same issue on a Thinkpad T43P and another i586 machine as
well. Using reiserfs makes the performance improve and I no longer see these

Let me know what information I can provide. I don't really have any hard
evidence to back me up. It's just something that's very noticeable when trying
to use the Desktop.
