    I have a task called 'named' running and it's taking up 100% of a single core (swtiches cores periodically, but 100% when it does). Any idea what this is and whether I can kill it? It looks like it belongs to Internet Sharing.

    Edit: I just turned IS off and it disappeared. Turned IS back on and it seems to have killed 'named'.
