I use Win4Lin 5.1 which runs fine under e. Recently (within the last
three weeks of cvs builds), I notice that X is always using 1-3% CPU
cycles even when I am idle and no apps are running (per gkrellm2). This
ONLY occurs if Win4Lin has not been launched in e. Once it is launched,
X cpu usage is 0 when idle.
I thought it was a W4L module thing, but running KDE 3.3.2 in the exact
same environment -- kernel, modules, boot parameters -- X uses no cycles
Not a show stopper, but could be an e thing since it does not occur

I ran PS several times and all results were high and different. Under
KDE I got 0.8 each time (probably because I was using E term and X was
needed to draw a new display). E consistently has higher X usage.
Once Win4Lin was loaded, X usage was nil. Maybe not an E problem, but I
thought I would mention it. Only because it does not occur under KDE.
