I'll download the latest snapshot and look at what's changed.  Do you
remember where the changes might be located - I'd guess somewhere in,, and/or  Or if you remember the date

This happens on a variety of hardware - single-CPU is where it's the

seen it on multi-core and multi-physical-CPU systems as well.
