Good idea, but no. I'm sitting at the console. The box is connected
via ethernet (sis driver). There's no wireless card involved. BTW,
USB is also not in use, so that's not the reason.

The problem seems to be identical, wether the box is idle or busy
(currently running portupgrade -akrRf since 8 hours). When busy,
the box feels just a little more sluggish than before, but those
delays are the same, wether idle or busy. They also never happened
before, even when compiling qt etc... This is something new.

There are no console messages.
