why is npviewer.bin such a CPU hog?



  i've never noticed this process before, and it may have come along
when i recently installed vlc, but npviewer.bin:

$ locate npviewer.bin
/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/npviewer.bin

has a nasty habit of sucking up gobs of CPU.  according to top, it can
be using anywhere from 25-45% of the CPU if i'm just browsing a web
page with an embedded youtube video.  mind you, i'm not even
*watching* the video, there's just one embedded in the page somwehere,
and a chunk of my CPU goes bye bye.

  is this normal?  is anyone else seeing this?
