    Ah ha. Thanks! I've been seeing the same thing all day with the
    device being unresponsive and not much battery life. Now I
    remember that I had disabled the bad metalayer-crawler daemon on
    os2007 as it really takes over when you have lots of media. I've
    just killed it again and the difference in usability of the
    interface is markedly increased:
    update-rc.d -f metalayer-crawler0 remove
