Hello Philippe,

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I wasn't very clear, my apologies.

The image seems to be doing some kind of polling which is using CPU even 
when the image should seem to be using none as it is doing nothing.

I haven't researched the squeak-dev archives yet. But I thought 
something had been done to change the polling behavior in Squeak. I'll 
have to see if I can research that.
