[SLUG] Red-Hat 7 slow - kupdate

I have recently upgraded from RedHat 6.0 on a 100Mhz Pentium to
RedHat 7 on a 1GHz Pentium III. It now runs like a dog - quite
regularly there is a pause when typing at the command line when
nothing else running. It seems to be more prevalent when the 
machine has been up for a few hours.

"top" reveals a task called "kupdate" to be using 99.5% of the CPU 
at these times.

Does anyone know what's going on and how to correct it?

Regards, Greg Wood.
