IDLEHALT=1 works for my machines and reduces the CPU load under VirtualBox to nearly zero at the command prompt.

Yes, was only for testing purposes :-) If v2 is packaged would it be possible to continue shipping the 1.9 branch in parallel? My impression is that the v2 fork focusses on adding new stuff: Linux support, 64-bit and so forth… And from time to time they seem to break older stuff. I at least under Win9x encountered some regressions.
