    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:

    Code:
    /
    /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby
    /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/libruby.1.dylib
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/hpricot-0.8.4/lib/hpricot_scan.bundle
    /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/hpricot-0.8.4/lib/fast_xs.bundle
    /usr/lib/dyld
    /private/var/db/dyld/dyld_shared_cache_x86_64
    ->0xffffff802c8911b0
    ->0xffffff8026af1810
    
    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.

    Are you building anything in the Terminal?

    Check /var/log/system.log to see if it makes any mention of a process being restarted regularly.
