Hi all,

Many of you have been reporting the "processes use 100% cpu" bug
recently, which has a bug entry here:
I believe newer Linux distros have started shipping libraries
which make it unavoidable to trigger this bug.

Now, the good news is the bug has been found thanks to exarkun:
The bad news is that it is a PyGTK bug I can do nothing about:

So if you get high cpu usage, bug your distro and/or PyGTK to release
the fix which has been provided.
