I should have added that this is a Dell Inspiron 1525 with an Intel GM965 chipset with an X1300 
graphics card. The 'low' %cpu 13 to a 'high' %cpu 64, is with Desktop effects enabled (just the 
default ones) and with the Desktop effects turned off, Xorg gives a 'low' of %cpu 9 and a 'high' 
of %cpu 19 -- which is still way too high.

I'm not sure what is causing it but if others notice it then I will file a bug report.
