  I noticed the same thing with 0.12 under stock RedHat9.  I don't
remember if it was 70% but it was definitely using noticably more CPU
than it was when I left the rip progress screen, even though ripping was
still being done in the background.  This was donig a perfect rip, btw. 
I didn't bother looking into the problem as I don't ofetn rip DVDs and I
don't leave Myth in the progress screen.
