 After following Remko's advice, i.e., ktrace-ing some of the processes
 (i.e., moused and couriertcpd), I can see that they're definitely not
 doing anything with ktrace.out being empty and top showing >1% cpu
 usage.  I ran ktrace on rsync _ONLY_ (after ktrace -C'ing and deleting
 ktrace.out) and it grew in size very quickly.  AND all ports are
 LISTENing (other than ssh and rsync).
