loader

What is the loader process, and why are there multiple processes? Also, why do they suck up so much cpu? I frequently get 100% cpu and lockups or overheating. Particularly with download jobs.

Now, my machine runs hot, always has -- I don't blame Calibre for that per se. It just highly exacerbates the problem.

Even when I close Calibre, I still have loader processes running and I have to kill them manually via the command line. I haven't found a way to tell Calibre not to use so much cpu.

Xubuntu 9.04, 2.6.28-17-generic kernel.

Thanks,

m a r
