Bug Description

OS: Xubuntu Jaunty. Tested with 'nv' and 'nouveau' drivers.

With certain GTK themes (Human, MurrinaStormCloud, maybe others) X process uses 27-30% CPU. With other themes (like Redmond, Xfce-4.4) it shows normal CPU usage (3-5%).

High X.org CPU usage is usually *not* an X server bug. The server is simply responding to client demands, and if the client application is driving X to hard, it can generate high CPU loads showing up against X. So you need to figure out what client program is driving X so hard. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/HighCPU for guidance in doing this, and update the 'Package' for this bug once you've found it.

affects: xorg (Ubuntu) → ubuntu

This looks like a duplicate of bug #293637. It seems to be connected with the bar animations of the Human theme.
