Thank you Tim for the feedback!

Our system is a Intel Xeon 3 GHz Dual-CPU with 2.5 GB RAM running
RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 (SElinux disabled).

As this is a test-machine it doesn't run any CPU-consuming tasks I can
think of - the server load is usually somewhere between 0.00 and 0.10.

But I'll check that nevertheless!
