Grmbl. You can forget about it, I found the magic knob. Normally I don't even notice that the tracer is running in background. This time I did notice it, but didn't realised that it was the reason. Already disabling it during runtime "solves" my problem. It looks like its overhead combined with a few more debug options of Linux, the high IRQ load, and a low-end board drove the otherwise only moderately loaded box into starvation. Sorry for making noise, let's go back to business. Jan
