  Banshee uses too much CPU

Status in Banshee Music Player:
Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: banshee

  While playing and minimized to the system tray, Banshee uses 65-70%
  CPU and also pushes pulseaudio CPU usage up to around 30%.
  Additionally, when using "next" or "previous" buttons Banshee CPU
  usage goes up to 150%. Importing approximately 6000 songs took over 20
  minutes, although the first 3000 or so only took about 5 minutes.

  System: P4 2.8 Ghz with hyperthreading, 2GB RAM

  Tested with latest Banshee from Jaunty repos and also the Banshee Team
  PPA version.
