It'd nice to see the output from top so we can see what is consuming
most of the cpu or anything consuming less than it should because it's
waiting for something else that's slower. It might be useful to see
'perf top' if perf is installed, and if not install it, reproduce the
problem and let perf top run for a minute, then post it on fpaste or
pastebin so the formatting stays semisane.
