CPU level going to high levels, this is due to autohide bug:

Kevin has fixed this.  Thanks Kevin :)

Try kdebase-workspace-4.1.2-5.fc10: I found the culprit, it's a patch which 
fixes flickering during the autohide animations which has this unfortunate side 
effect. I disabled that patch for now until it can get fixed properly. (I 
didn't disable autohide entirely, it's still there, it just looks ugly. ;-) 
Still disabled by default though, and as long as I have any influence on it, 
it'll stay that way (even if upstream decides to enable it at some point), I 
really hate autohide. ;-) )
