Yes, I'm running atrpms-bleeding (follows SVN trunk) and I saw this yesterday.

Yes and I have not figured out why this happens on my box. I recently
upgraded from 512MB to 1.5GB and it still happens using the
Mythcenter-Wide theme and OpenGL painter with the latest Nvidia stuff
from atrpms. I've not gone back to Qt to see if it's fixed.

This is cpufreq keeping your cores running slower until you need them.
It's a power-saving (and heat-saving) technique which watches how
busy your cores are and only ramps up the MHz when you need it. Run
"watch -d -n1 cat /proc/cpuinfo" and then start something
CPU-intensive. You'll see the cpu MHz ramp up.
