I have been using Gentoo on a mid 2010 MacBook (the white one) with a strange problem. Every now and then when I do anything that requires the Nvidia chip the machine starts thrashing madly and keeps doing so for about 30 seconds or more, then finishes off and is OK to use. One scenario is if I have Firefox open with more than one tab using Flash and then I play something in gnome-mplayer. Or sometimes if I open two YouTube tabs. As I expected, since the upgrade to Gnome 3, this problem has gotten much worse. This never happens when using Nouveau. I have no swap space enabled, but according to the Gnome System Monitor, whenever this happens the ``cache'' part of what is in RAM gets wiped out.

I would really appreciate some help with this!

Here is the output of emerge --info:
