This is probably the FC1 SMP kernel problem:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=109962

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=109497

The bugzillas provide several workarounds. The comments at the end of
first bugzilla mentioned above gives hope that this problem will be
fixed soon.
