If I just click on the speaker icon on the top right corner in unity, processor usage rockets to 100% until I close the menu. I am playing some music on Rhythm-box and have conky.

Is it doing something without a sleep() or something? Does it have a do-nothing loop?

The funniest thing is that ubuntu-bug unity sent me to report a bug ḧere in askubuntu.
