Mystery task hogs 50% of CPU.

It takes more time to report a bug than to find one.
In joyride-2301, I was trying unsuccessfully to reproduce someone else's bug (maybe #8052), but gave up. Afterward I noticed sluggish response for no good reason. So in Terminal I ran
and saw a persistent python task hogging 50% of the CPU and 20% memory, for a long time, for no good reason. Even with no Sugar Activities running, 'top' in the ctrl-alt-F1 console still showed the mystery python task hogging CPU. Can't remember what I did to kill it; probably rebooted. Screenshot of 'top' attached.
