Happens on an irregular basis on 12.04 and I think I've experienced it on 11.10.

For no reason gvfsd-afp starts up. Cooling fan kicks in, system becomes laggy. Easily cured using system monitor and killing the process. Someone on the Ubuntu Forum asked if I have a Mac on the network and the answer is yes, an iMac and there are shares on that machine I can access.

Have experienced this issue on my Acer Aspire 5742 and Compaq Mini 110
