This issue is not just a problem when Myth is sitting idle on menus.
Mythfrontend appears to have the same behavior when watching a video
in an external player.  It may be happening when watching a video or
recording in the internal player but it is sort of hard to separate
out the CPU usage on that.  For those of us that have machines that
are on the edge of playing video and drop a frame occasionally, having
useless work consuming 15-20% of your processor can be enough to make
the video unwatchable.
