X behaving strangly



Hello Friends,

My PC a 1,9Ghz P4 700MB ram 60 gig Segate Barracuda. running FC2 with 
kernel 2.6.5-1.358 and the 5336 Nvidia driver. Bla Bla bla...

For some reason this week only it has decided that every now and then it
will be slow. So I ran top as root and found X using 97% cpu by itself.
so I renice it to 15 (Ha ha :=})
But the question is why? in the first place. How can I find out what is
causing this, given the only thing that was running was xmms, when I
closed it X caried on chomping my cpu! So now I have just reniced it to
19 so that I could finish my mail to you.
