    I have a "ruby" process taking 100% cpu with 1 Thread running, taking 36.3 mb Real Mem. It disappears after running for 5 seconds and comes back again after another 5.

    upon looking at the open files and ports from the activity inspector, this is the following information:

    Anyone have this problem? I'm not sure whether one of my apps would use ruby, but at the moment I only have finder, console, terminal and activity monitor on.
