high processor usage by cinnamon

Postby romleinster on Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:01 pm

i'm running mint 14 on an amd a6-5400k, vesa graphics: dvst and 7.3 GB of ram.
When idle, top gives acceptable but high load avgs (around 0.4 for 15 min). As soon as I run a process though (like a video in firefox), loads get very high (well above 1.0 for the 1 minute) and stay high. During this time, cinnamon is using the cpu about 90+% of the time.
this doesn't happen when using a gnome classic session. Anyone else having this issue or know of any fixes?
Thanks
