I keep seeing this really odd interaction, where the second I start google-chrome or a newer version (>= 4), my currently running processes start overloading the CPU.

Firefox becomes unresponsive for several seconds, burning CPU. Yesterday I decided to watch FF in gdb and saw that it's accessing thousands of font files , each causing a "SIGSYS, Bad system call".

Can anyone guess why FF gets SIGSYS, failing to access a world-readable file? Bug report: bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.
