O.K., I managed to get a peek at what I am facing (this is on MacOS X, see my comment above). I wonder whether there is a similar situation using the Windows executable. I managed to see the call stack of a thread that seems to be hogging everything. What I've been able to do is to close all tabs and windows, and the darned thing still hogs the entire system. So then, I attached to the process and looked at this piggy thread ... (last call shown first)

Earlier, I sampled text using Apple's Activity Monitor and in the thread that had sqlite3, I think I saw a hole series of nested mprintf() (or something like that), I though it might be peculiar. Anyway, I think the sqlite3 may be part of Places. Will start looking better in bugzilla, now that I have some function calls (if I did it right;) Larry.
