CPU Spikes while Debugging on Mac

When debugging a java application under IntelliJ on my Mac Book Pro (Intel), I get full CPU until I kill -9 the java process I attached to.

I have tried IntelliJ 6.0.5 and 7.0 M2, connecting to Tomcat 5.5 through Intellij, Tomcat 5.5 remote debugging, Tomcat 4.1.36 under JVM 1.4.2 remote, Glassfish 9.1 remote... tried it all... always happens.

I can close Intellij and open Eclipse, and it works just fine under all of the above configurations.

Any tips on helping me debug this issue?
