Does anyone else's CPU and fans go full load when Spotlight is indexing with Lion? Or when installing XCode?

I wish that GFXstatus worked in Lion, i have a feeling that my ATi card is stuck on.

I don't have these problems with 10.6. I feel this new Dev2 has fixed most of the appearance bugs that I noticed, but it introduced a LOT of performance bugs.

GFXstatus works for the most part. Spotlight indexing was fixed for me after a reboot. I had a suspicion my 11 day time to index was wrong :-)
Edited to say, GFXstatus works on late 2010 MBP for me, not early 2011.

Mine indexed in about 3hrs, then on reboot started indexing again. Both times taking 83% of my CPU.

Ouch. I'd report that then. I read on the Dev forum about it, but a re-boot fixed most last time I read.

Mine started to do that as well. Stop the indexing on the all volumes with
sudo mdutil -a -i off

then restart sudo mdutil -a -i on

It will report that it will take 48 hours but will finish in 15 min usually. I have had to do this twice. There are several posts on the Dev forums about it.
