By accident I found a workaround... Actually I have also AutomaticUnits installed from http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/7655/ If I open in the Mathematica Help Browser the Palette of AutomaticUnits, the processor load goes to normal level immediately. Browsing again in Mathematica Navigator explodes the load. Closing and reopening the palette again reduces the processor load. But I had to close other notebooks to get this effect. So only help browser is open. Maybe there are other workarounds?
