CVS emacs is sometimes terribly sluggish

Every so often (so far I haven't seen any pattern) CVS emacs becomes really
slow, even though I'm performing only really simple tasks (entering a few
characters, switching windows or frames, positioning the pointer, all these
commands then take a few seconds).  A ps command then shows me that emacs is
running somewhere between 30% and 50% CPU for no apparent reason. I have a
sneaking suspicion that it may have to do something with multiple frames. I
use typically from 3 to 5 or 6 frames and I've noticed that, when I delete all
frames but one, emacs CPU usage goes down drastically. I'm using emacs under
Solaris 5.8.

Has anybody seen something similar and how would I go about investigating this
