I have noticed the same thing on my Squeeze AMD64 system, not sure when exactly this started happening but its made a perfectly usable Athlon 64 machine almost useless. I killed /usr/lib/gamin/gam_server but it started up again.
The solution presented (modify /etc/gamin/gaminrc ) might be acceptable in unstable but I don't think its a fix in testing.
I have also noticed that Thunar and Pcmanfm will not browse directories deeper than one or two levels since I ran apt-get update a few days ago. These 2 might be related issues.
My last apt-get update was on Mon Apr 26 14:14:39 2010.
I've used Debian since version 2.0 and never filed a bug, but this is annoying enough to make me file one...
