One thing that really sticks out in this one for me
is rhn-applet-gui. That thing is just huge.
I booted my machine an hour ago, and here's what
top has to say about it..

  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
 3370 davej     26  10  198m  26m 182m S  0.0  1.3   0:01.50 rhn-applet-gui
                        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
WOW. -------------------'

It's not even _doing_ anything right now.
(digs out strace). Ugh.. It's stuck in a loop polling a socket.

ioctl(14, FIONREAD, [0])                = 0
poll([{fd=9, events=POLLIN}, {fd=11, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=14, events=POLLIN}, {fd=3, events=POLLIN}, {fd=5, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=13, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=15, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}], 8, 99) = 0

This thing really needs to go to sleep more often.

Ugh, it got worse..
