    This JUST now happened with me. Everytime iChat opens up the CPU usage jumps to 99% and makes the computer really hot. I am running a macbook 2.13 GhZ with 2 MB of ram (see below) and this has never happened before...has some update or something screwed things up? But this was running just fine like yesterday...

    Looks to me like a mild case of iChatgonecrazy syndrome.

    Actually, my iChat was acting really funny today as well. It wouldn't connect and would beach ball for a while until I restarted. Somehow I doubt our troubles were related, though.
