Finally, after upgrading to 188.8.131.52, I found the problem! (what a
relief) After upgrading, the CPU cycles were properly reported and
top gave the crucial hint...
If you start xine in background directly from init scripts with
--stdctl it seems to hog all your spare CPU cycles. Removing this
(unnecessary in this case) option did drop CPU usage from constant
100% to a total of about 20%.
