If you think you may have a disk I/O problem have you checked your
PCI latency settings ?. Do you get a message in your boot log from
ivtv about "unreasonable" latency settings ?
While I don't think problems there would lead to the precise problem
you are reporting, it is worth checking into, particularly if you
have a VIA chipset on your mobo.
