High CPU Usage Caused by Breakpoints

I always wondered why on my Mac (OS/X) Revolution was using more than 50% of the CPU, even when
everything except the main stack was closed and the IDE was in design mode (pointer tool).
Accidentally (inspired by the debugging problem reported by Alex Tweedly today) I chose "Clear All
Breakpoints" from the "Development" menu - and CPU dropped to < 1%!
I never hit breakpoint, and I think I had removed all active breakpoints diligently, but it's
possible to enter a breakpoint behind the EOF of a script by simply clicking in the left window
border (obviously a bad idea to activate a window) - maybe one of them was the culprit.
I won't report this to Bugzilla as it may not be a bug - and the bug list seems to be long enough
