I doubt it, I've got LVM0.9.1b7 on a 486 without any real load... even when
compiling the kernel.  I also have reiserfs on 2.2.19.	I noticed in your
previous post that you had 3 pv's on the same physical disk... that may be
contributing, depending on your PE layout on the PVs.  If not, it's
definitely silly :)
