Hmm.. with the KDE monitor disabled it appears to be happening every 30 
seconds now.

It's odd because the KDE monitor is set for every 5 seconds..

I note that if I do 'acpiconf -i 1' it will hitch, but if I do it again soon 
afterwards it won't. I don't have a second battery -  perhaps the hitching in 
that case was related to looking for it, and the ACPI stuff was caching (for 
a short period) the no-battery information.

Now to find the source of the 30 second hitches :)
