The real "main menu", top level menu when mythfrontend starts.

Well, I don't even see the "throbbing" which you describe. The
highlighting on the menu items is static (brighter then the rest but no
animation). I am on a slower machine then you but nonetheless, this is
just the rendering of the theme. It should never take this much CPU
especially with hardware acceleration.
