@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.

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.
