They drop you to about 1 fps. You can see millions of them, and they take about 10 minutes to collect them all.
Is notch working on this? D:

Do you realise that this has been fixed in the actual 1.8 version? People like you need to read change logs and understand the words "Pre-Release"
It hasn't been fixed in SMP. I love how people read the logs and assume they're right no matter what.
To OP: A fix I have used on my server (because it kept making certain chunks unplayable randomly) is to use bukkit dev build and install 2 certain plugins. The first being nolagg (to prevent the severity of it) and the second being orbremoval (search for it on bukkit forums). With those 2, xp orb issues should not be a problem until an actual fix occurs.
Personally, I don't think players should drop exp orbs in the first place. It kinda makes no sense that you can die, and run back to your corpse to collect all your experience. The point is kinda supposed to be when you die, you lose all your exp, and you can't get it back.
