At least once, I encountered a Java Virtual Machine which
ran its "garbage collection" process at idle priority.

In my experience, applications which do not run anything at
idle priority are not interfered with by the dnet client.
But if the application has something which runs at the same
priority (idle) as the dnet client, then yes - there would
be competition for (idle) CPU cycles, and (depending on the
operating system scheduler) the application would complete
slower, or might even get "locked out" while dnetc ran.
