I noticed it freezed when i transcoded from mp3 to ogg, with mp32ogg.
Then later I noticed it freezed too when I encoded from wav to ogg with

When I use mp32ogg or oggenc, the CPU load is 99% during the process and
the computer freezes after 10 minutes.

But, I tried to load the CPU and bzip2 a large file during 30 minutes,
but the computer stays OK, though cpu load is 99%.

So, does oggenc more "heat" the CPU than any other application ?

I'm running an AMD XP 2200+ under Debian Testing.
