Bug#264242: artsd takes 20 % of my CPU when idle

Package: libarts1
Version: 1.2.3-1
Severity: normal


when my KDE session is idle and not playing any sounds, artsd takes 
20 % of my CPU to move zeroes to /dev/dsp. This is quite annoying.

Is this a bug in arts, or a configuration error on my side? Certainly
the sound subsystem doesn't need to take 20 % of a 800 MHz CPU just to
be silent.
