Weird performance behaviour in 7.0

This is my first Q6600 based system, and my first 7.0 system, and my
first AMD-64 system and my first ZFS base system, and I'm seeing
something really strange. Every now and then, processes run really
slowly, like at 1/600th (or worse) than it ought to, but it racks up
the CPU time as though it's running full tilt.
For example, I have this little test program that just does a tight
loop, and most times, it takes about 3 seconds to complete, but right
now, it's taking about 2000 seconds to complete. Right now, it's
consistently running slow, but sometimes it will run slow, but I can
terminate it and start another one which will run at normal speed.
Currently sysctl reports:
What might be causing this? What information is pertinent for
inclusion in a problem report?
