Oh yeah, interestingly, I was using the stock Ubuntu Kernel when I 
couldn't even move the mouse any more. Meanwhile I compiled myself a 
Kernel with Ingo's patches using the directions at UbuntuStudio.com. 
With this one, the CPU usage was 99% too, but the GUI was still 
perfectly responsive.

Perfect argument for including the patch in the main kernel tree... 
Responsive GUI no matter what happens to the CPU.
