CPU usage when AddOns is open in Help Browser

Hi, all, 

      I run Mathematica 6.0.3 on a 32-bit Linux system. Whenever I open 
the "Installed AddOns" window from the Help Browser, and then choose *any* of 
the installed AddOns (for example, Mr. Park's "Presentations"), the CPU usage 
in my system goes up dramatically (to the extent that one of the CPUs is 
often pegged at 100%, with the other one also being worked). Nothing has to 
be shown in the lower frame of the window (where the actual documentation is 
displayed) for this to happen.
     I note that it is actually the x frontend (/usr/bin/X) which is doing 
much of the cranking, though it doesn't do it even when I have quite 
complicated 3D things going on in a regular Mathematica notebook. Does the 
AddOns browser use an outdated interaction with the x system?
