Re: OpenBSD-current in slow motion: solved

Well, I didn't shoot myself, but my ThinkPad did.  I got
stuck somehow in battery saver mode when on AC,
thus losing 80%+ of my CPU.  My clue was that disk
I/O was still fast.   The dmesg output said that I was at
1.80GHz however, which is puzzling, but might be an
artifact of what IBM does to slow things.

In any event, sorry for the noise.  Things are normal now.
