through easily. I first thought the box freezed but I realized the
software cursor was blinking *very* slowly. In fact 1 second for the
kernel took about 12 seconds. Stopping the IO load on ide and
everything seems back to normal.

Hmm, interesting observation. This makes me remeber something: When my machine freezes doing hdparm, the cursor still blinks, but I can't do anything anymore. Maybe a connection to your observation? I haven't treid to run the NMI watchdog, as you guys haven't had success with it yet.
