No, and I now have disabled loading the module at boot aswell.  Still no 
difference.  I would also think that if that were the cause, the 
situation would be a lot worse on the notebook, where a lot more devices 
share one interrupt.  But on the notebook (much slower machine), it 
isn't quite as bad as on the desktop machine.
