One of life's little mysteries :-)  I never did find out why it was happening, 
but after I plugged in the film scanner and installed vuescan I decided that 
I should try a reboot.  I lost my display settings and keyboard settings!  
But after putting them right I realised that I was no longer getting all that 
activity.
