@Arul: I'm still seeing it happen on 16.04. Upgrading to 17 isn't an option for 
some of us as we rely on third parties that don't support non-LTS releases 
(e.g., DSE Cassandra)
@Ketil: Couldn't agree more. Lower priority bugs are the red-headed stepchild 
on launchpad.

  initctl continuously takes 100% of CPU

Bug description:
  Many programs are fairly slow to start on my computer, despite it
  being relatively new (core i5). Suspecting a heavy CPU usage, I
  started gnome-system-monitor: all processes were displayed at 0% CPU,
  but the overall load was 1.33; 1.33; 1.34.

  Using the "top" command, however, revealed the real CPU use, with the
  "initctl" process taking 100%CPU, even 1 hour after startup.

  I upgraded to roaring ringtail before checking this but the symptoms
  were the same with quantal quetzal, so there is a fair chance the
  causes were identical.
