No, not using timedemo. I'm backing myself into a corner on a map and putting the crosshairs on a specific object. A time demo would tell me the same thing.
Prometheus: I havn't used those programs as I have no point of reference for them. If you are having the same problem and don't have mtrr compiled in the kernel, give that a shot, that fixed it for someone on the gentoo forums, maybe you'll fair better than I. Eitherway if I do get a solution I'll be sure to post it here as well.
