Just a thought: what is the output of "sysctl dev.cpu.0" both before,
and after running rsync? If for some reason your CPU is ending up in a
very low frequency mode, then it's not inconceivable that daemons would
appear to take a much greater share of the CPU than usual. Also, I'm
assuming the clock maintains time normally?
