A datapoint here - I've been running into a lot of plugin/denormal issues
on some sessions I've been working on.  I'll run a playback, and when I
hit stop, the system load would end up at 90-95%, and dropped to about 15%
when I hit play again.

I traced it to some EQ plugins, one from the swh collection that's part 
of the Planet CCRMA distribution and another (3 band parametric) from the
TAP collection.  When I substituted a different (and less flexible) EQs, 
the problem went away.
