This (last) observation is consistent with what I am seeing: 0% CPU on a
400Mhz PII

I think it has more to do with the type of computer you have. If you
have your pproxy running on a low 486, I can imagine getting 15%
cputime. On my p2-350 its a few %'s.

Well, I already explained what you can do about it. But on the other
hand, a proxy is not a client that should only take idle time, its a
server that is not exactly optimized for resources. The few people
that actually need a proxy (or want one for stats etc) have to accept
the fact that a part of their cpu-time will go to the proxy.
