intellij 11.1 eats up lots of processor time even when idle


basically what the title says. Every time i start intellij, after a little while it starts chewing up processor time, even if i have nothing specific running and i'm not doing anything in it.

Please see attached screenshot for a top example.

It wasn't this bad in earlier versions, and i'm not sure where to begin looking for the reason.

Pointers are much appreciated, this is not working out very well for me.

OSX, 11.1, Build 117-117.
