Have you run update-grub after modifying /etc/default/grub?

comment How to check from a command line that network is reachable?
@Radek it's quite simple. I assume by 'connectivity' you mean it can talk to some other host on the intranet. So run ping -c 2 -n <other host's IP> and operate on the return code: if true (0), then it has connectivity; if false (1), then it can't talk to that machine.

I have no idea if it's related or not, but this was running on kernel 3.2.0-3-rt-amd64 from Debian unstable

comment Can't kill process, not in zombie or uninterruptable sleep
The directory in which I ran the command contains a couple of symlinks to directories on another fs. Both filesystems are local and ext3. Do you think that would have an effect?

I've gone and rebooted, but I used a similar command before I did so, and the WCHAN column only had -. Disk wait would put it in D state, and not result in high CPU, wouldn't it?
