Yes, random background processes slow the test suite

Note to self: before spending fifteen minutes figuring out why the spec suite suddenly slowed down 10%, make sure random processes aren’t running in the background (say, FTL).

It’s a little surprising that one process taking up 60% of *one* of my 8 processors would slow the test suite down by that much, though.
