Yup. This is not a heavily loaded system. I'm not doing an excessive amount of shared memory stuff as well, and I am not using sysctl tweaks that effect shared mem. The thing is completely default (well, almost, I bumped up NMBCLUSTERS and maxusers, and I trimmed the kernel config to excluse stuff my laptop simply doesn't have or will never have, like some NIC's and SCSI adapters). The machine is a desktop machine that runs KDE 2.2.2 (the testing tarballs, see freebsd.kde.org for more info) and actually nothing more. So that's actually why I posted it. It struck me as strange as well that this should appear, because I've never seen it before. Also tweaking other vm bits seems not good, since the VM really does a good job in balancing itself already. I shouldn't mess in something that already works.
