[Bug 803943] Re: compiz consuming a lot of cpu


Leaving a terminal window with htop running, I've noticed an interesting
detail related to compiz CPU consumption patterns.  The Clementine
player does it!

Seriously, when the Clementine is not launched, or launched but not
vissible the compiz CPU% stays within reasonable limits (0%-3%).  But
when Clementin is launched the CPU% jumps to 30%-60%. All that with no
other activity.

Now, that I think of it, it could be a QT thing. Hiding Clementine and
launching Bitcoin-Qt raises the compiz' CPU% to 18%, which was drawing a
progress bar and a spinner.

Now have both those applications minimized and compiz' CPU% is 1%-7% .
With no other activity. Hope it helps
