Emacs using too much CPU

Hi All

I have this pesky little problem with emacs: it is always running at
around 55% CPU utilization. I have been trying to figure out what is
causing it without any avail. 

I tried truss on it. Seems to be trying to open a ".#vm-inbox" file in
my mail directory. vm-inbox is the primary inbox for VM mail reader
and also writes a lot to the X11-pipe (my guess).

I know this is not enough information for a solution. But maybe
someone has some idea on how to find out which program within emacs is
using the CPU so much.

I would appreciate any help.
