The machine is an dual Pentium 2 300MHz, and I'm running gnome 2.4.
I do also experience this with my computer at school, a single Pentium3

The load isn't very complicated, usually just gnome 2.4 and mozilla
firebird running.  If I then do anything that requires lots of cpu,
like a compile of a program, the interactivity drops fast.

On the dual machine I have also experienced a *HUGE* increase in the
time for "portupgrade -ar" to complete.  I am not familiar with how
portupgrade works, but it seems to spawn a few make's and sort's, but
I am not sure why it is currently using 3 hours instead of 10 minutes
to complete! (This was tested when there was no packages to upgrade,
which shouldn't take long)

Both machines (this dual and the one at school) are running with a
libmap.conf in order to use libkse, is this perhaps affecting the
performance of ULE?

I am not sure how useful this is to you, but if you have any other
pointers as to what I should look at just ask.
