#4 Query Amazon.com for album art and set my buddy icon to it


Whenever I check this option after a few seconds my CPU
utilization jumps to 100% or very close to that. I am
using WindowsXP Professional. The accounts I have
logged on are AIM and Yahoo. The options I have
selected are current track, extplacement, history,
i'dle maker, release notification, transparency, and
wingaim options. I am using iTunes (latest version).
I am using the beta 3 version of Gaim and the most
current version of current track (v0.8). This has been
happening since v0.7 as well. I never start playing
songs after I check the option though because of the
CPU % jumps way up.

    If album art is not found the code to query amazon is called
    at every update (every 10 seconds) and uses large amounts of
    CPU cycles.
