It shouldn't take too much CPU usage in that kind of situation, especially
because there are presumably no SQLite things going on at that time. Could you
try running Banshee in a clean user account to see if the issue persists? (Or
purge all your banshee configuration, as mentioned earlier in this bug report).
On my system, it only consumes around ~2% of an Intel Core 2 Duo and ~5% on a
Pentium 4 CPU for playing music, which I think is quite reasonable. How is the
CPU usage on your computer?

There is a slight CPU usage spike when switching songs, but that should be about it.

Those who do have an issue with CPU usage, please try identifying if it could be
a library issue or some other configuration problem. Also please test with
Banshee 1.5.2 from the Banshee Team PPA[1] and the daily git builds of Banshee
in the Banshee daily PPA[2].
