    I have also had this issue when updatedb (slocate) running
    and my XP box almost attempting to die. This isn't an issue
    with colinux but an issue with the way that Windows does
    task scheduling. Linux has a far better and tolerant method,
    which is why you have to lower the process of the system. If
    you run it as a service you will be able to change the
    priority (check the mailing list or the wiki for more
    details). Excluding this, it isn't a colinux bug, but a
    Windows Scheduler failure.
