This should be added to the CommonBugs page, shouldn't it? It is not 
normal to have >0.00 if a system is completely idle. It's shocking to 
see no kernel hacker have interest in fixing this issue after over three 
months of it being reported. The load counter is pretty much useless at 
the moment.

P.S. I am seeing 0.92 load on the system I am typing this message on. 
The only program running is Thunderbird! (99% idle)
