[sc-dev] idle scsynth CPU usage

Hi everyone,

I've been noticing something strange with scsynth (this is after all the other CPU strangeness that has been happening appears to have worked itself out). Basically, I noticed in Activity Monitor and top that simply starting scsynth has it running at 8% of the CPU with nothing happening. The server window reports 0.2%. This is on one of the 1.67 GHz PowerBooks. Either way... a recent build on my old machine (1.5 GHz PB) shows about 1% in Activity Monitor. I just did a fresh build... I'm wondering if anyone else sees anything like this in a new build? And if so... is this perhaps a recent change that has done this? Or is it my machine that is causing the problem... which based on my experiences over the past couple days wouldn't surprise me!
