Right now my PF Delta is at 288 -- which is to say that
I'm averaging 288 page faults every second (each time
the display in TaskMan refreshes).

If I unload the GeoTray (or load an older version) the
page fault stop.

I haven't tracked it any further than that yet. I'm
hoping illumination can handle this and we can release
it ASAP on the plugins page (we should post the
information on the front page, since this is a pretty
nasty bug).

    We tracked down the API call which was generating the page faults. illumination made some changes so it wasn't called as often which resulted in far fewer page faults. eiko wrote an alternate version using psapi.dll which doesn't cause any page faults, but only works on systems which have psapi.
