full screen to a size that matches the theme's default resolution.

I have a 1920x1080 screen using mythcenter-wide ( which might have a native
resolution of 1280x720).  If I change my GUI to not be full screen, but
rather 1280x720 on my 1920x1080 screen, CPU usage drops back to where I
would expect it to be.  And the same behavior is with terra theme as well.

Is it possible there is something that is trying to reconvert the something
