CPU usage when idle is too high

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Open iTerm2
- Do nothing
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
On my slow computer, iTerm2 uses around 2.5% of CPU. It should use 0%.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
beta11, OSX 10.6.3
Please provide any additional information below.
It may have something to do with "screen refresh rate", which is a very weird thing for a terminal emulator to have to worry about. I know of no other terminal emulator that requires it, which probably points to a strange drawing code architecture/algorithm in iTerm2.
