The distnoted problem made emacs almost unusable when I "upgraded" to
mavericks a few months ago.  The distnoted process took 120% of the
capacity according to the Activity Monitor (yes, over 100%).  Killing
the distnoted
process sometimes helped.
A preliminary version of the distnoted repair that Vincent was kind enough
to send me brought emacs back to normal.
