Akregator uses a large amount of CPU time

Using ‘top’ I see that Akregator uses from 60 to 86% CPU time. My version of openSUSE is

VERSION="12.3 (Dartmouth)"
PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE 12.3 (Dartmouth) (x86_64)"

and Akregator is:

rpm -q akregator

Akregator only has to look after 4 threads, so I find the amount of CPU time spent excessive - it looks like a busy form of wait.

I have tried to tweak the setting, by to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

That seems weird.

I’m using akregator to follow a bunch of blogs. And I don’t recall it ever showing up in “top” – its CPU usage is too low.

It’s hard to say what you are doing wrong, since I don’t know what you are doing.

I am fetching feeds every 30 minutes. I guess if you do that too often, the CPU usage would go up.
