Are you using Unfortunately as the whole CV was basically  
rewritten in SVN after 2.0 came out it's going be hard to compare  
directly with what there is in SVN.

One thing you could do is when you have the 100% CPU, open Activity  
Monitor, select the Amarok process,and then click the Sample Process  
buton in the toolbar. Then paste that output somewhere
