Localhost uses 100% cpu (within virtualbox)
At work I have use a windows 7 machine, but have virtualbox setup so I can work within ubuntu as and when I can. One quite debilitating issue I am having is that whenever I open a browser and go to a page within my localhost (LAMP) it suddenly gobbles up 100% of my processor so I have to wait a minute or 2 before I can test the page.
In virtualbox I have dedicated 2 of my 4 processors to this VHD, aswell as 5500MB of base memory and 24mb of video memory. My version of ubuntu is Lucid, and I have reverted to a PHP5.2 LAMP environment (as required by Drupal).
Sorry if this ends up being a very silly mistake to have made somewhere in the setup. Thankyou for any advice you can give.

Is anyone else having similar issues? I recently upgraded my Ubuntu install to meerkat and get the same issue, causing local pages to load really slowly, and make my virtualbox creak.
