I've been using Ubuntu 11.10 for a while, but recently upgraded to a fresh install of 12.04 LTS. I am noticing a program called flush-encryptfs- using a significant portion (30 to 80%) cpu resources. It seems to start running when I launch chrome. If I close chrome, it will eventually stop. This is having a huge impact on system performance.
What is flush-encryptfs-? What is it doing? How can I stop it?
I am using an Asus Eee PC netbook. It's a new install of 12.04 with very few additional programs installed and yes I encrypted my home folder.
