I found exactly the same thing, plus it slowed down my GPU folding because it couldn't keep the video cards fed properly. I was just burning an extra 100W for nothing. I'm getting more work done without a CPU folding slot at all.
My PPD just got killed because it was unable to upload results for at least 12 hours. So much for the rapid return bonus...
