with 2.6.29-g5 vbox bins 2.2.4 and 3.1.x run w/almost no cpu activity when not doing anything (especially a particular app I have loaded in xp but idle).

I recently found the zen sources (2.6.31-z9) which PERFECTLY fixes the i/o or heavy disc activity that afflicts kernels back to 2.6.1x (cp a 10G file and the desktop starts freezing intermittently).

my problem with the zen sources is either vbox rev uses much more cpu % even when not doing anything; but the real problem is this particular app I run in it drives up cpu usage more and temp (+5C), even when the app is idle.

I was going to paste in an edited diff of the two kernel cfgs but it's kind of ugly reading so can somebody tell me what/how to include to understand what's the matter?
