Running this kernel is not any better. After leaving my system idle for 
10 minutes I finally saw it dip below 0.10, but after leaving the 
computer, and coming back 10 minutes later, I see a load of 0.25. No 
programs running.

Before I hit "send" on this message, I ran uptime again and got this:
$ uptime
  12:45:24 up 32 min,  3 users,  load average: 0.82, 0.43, 0.34

Thunderbird was the only program running. 99.8% idle.
