kernel page writer thread

using hrev24979 on real hardware.

start a large download ( the new firefox from bebits ) or start to expand a large zxip ( the same file downloaded using BeOS max ) the operation continues for 10 to 15 seconds then just stops. Using the process controller, one can see that the kernel team page writer thread is using all the cpu cycles. No file operations can be done at this time. the system is not frozen, but the only thing that can be done is to reboot. any running apps are still responsive, but no new apps can be launched and nothing can be saved.
