Why is the harddrive working at 6MB/s as soon as I start up bitcoin 0.3.13 on my mac?
It starts when the first connection has been made.

This makes other things stutter, and I'm not even trying to generate coins

You're probably downloading the chain.
Also downloading the newest client will probably fix your problem.

If it still doesn't, symlink the debug.log to /dev/null Cheesy

Yeah it stoped now when I passed 20k blocks.

But it looks so suspicious for someone new to Bitcoin, thinking it's indexing the whole harddrive or something.
Perhaps for future versions someone should try to minimize this effect, maxing the harddrive for an hour isn't fun

I think there have been fixes with handling of debug.log writes recently.
IMO the debug log should even be disabled by default.
