The problem did turn out to be multuple copies of inetd running. Proctool was
downloaded and indicated that the CPU was idle. It appears that top needs to
be recompiled for sol 2.5.1. The problem with openwindows was probably caused
by inetd, as it was resolved after sending a SIGHUP to inetd, and restarting
a single instance of it.
