forgot to mention:

using qemu-kvm-1.1.1 on a 64bit gentoo host.

libvirt-0.9.13 now, downgraded from 0.10.2 today due to searching for a
solution (0.9 is stable in gentoo-terms, 0.10.x not yet)

The disks are stored as raw ... in LVM-volumes.

The symptoms:

sometimes the performance ist great, then lousy.
One window in the guest works fine, while another is completely

I had it working well once .. then ruined it by wanting to optimize it.
Something around choosing the CPU for the virtual machine.

I assume I should use kvm32?

The machine to be virtualized originated on a pentium1 ... and runs fine
on a VMware-server-2.x ... but the vmware-server is old now as well ...

thanks in advance, Stefan
