I have a very similar problem but I didn't know it was a bug. I just
assumed I had broken xorg somehow. I'd hoped it would go away with an
update to Feisty, but no joy :(

Interesting indeed, I noticed that too.

In my case, it only starts to hog CPU when the PC is been in "energy
saving mode" (I don't remember the exact name in English, sorry) for
some time. It may be my imagination but I think that if I leave one
window open on the desktop, not maximized, the hogging does not happen
or happens less often.

I don't know if any of this helped. Let's hope someone finds out
what's causing this problem.
