Bug Description

Hi, I've had problems when I use Audacious 3.2.1, it uses high CPU usage compared to other players, such as VLC media player 2.0.1.

Package: audacious 3.2.1-2

ApportVersion: 2.0.1-0ubuntu8
Architecture: i386
Date: Thu Jun 21 22:28:08 2012

InstallationMedia: Lubuntu 12.04 "Precise Pangolin" - Release i386 (20120423)

Suggestion: try turning off the info bar (View -> Show Info Bar) and see if CPU usage gets better. Let me know how that works.
