Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

I have thunderbird installed with lightning and it's consistently
hogging CPU (50% of a dual core). This heats my system up, kills my
battery life and causes my fans to run high. Not sure what I can provide
to help pinpoint the problem. Thanks in advance

I guess I can provide that I have a gmail imap account and a hotmail
imap account set up. This does not require me to send a message or do
anything really, just opening thunderbird and letting it check mail
jacks the CPU usage up permanently.
