Cursor Tracking Lag Caused by system_profiler

Has anyone else seen this issue?  It has only been reproduced on Thunderbolt-equipped Macs while attached to Cinema Displays (Either Mini-Display Port or Thunderbolt).  If you are able to test this on both Thunderbolt and Non-Thunderbolt Macs as well as Cinema and Third party displays, please leave the results of your testing in the comments.  I find that it is easiest to reproduce if you move the cursor in a circular motion and then run the command.  This makes it painfully obvious when the jerky-cursor behavior hits.  Check out details on this issue over on Kyle’s Blog.
