I just thought I'd pop back onto this list having read the archives online.

The issue of slim.exe taking 90%+ cpu appears to be related to iTunes.

For me, it seems that it only pegs my processor when I have iTunes running.
Can anyone else confirm this?

Thanks,
Phillip

Phillip's question about an iTunes correlation to the problem is a good
one. I fixed a bug in RealSlim (v0.5.5 and earlier) that triggered the
CPU pegging problem specifically when iTunes was installed. I'd like to
add that people with the problem also check for an old version of
RealSlim - v0.6 fixes this problem.

Vidur, would it make sense to create some sort of debug switch that will turn
off all plugins? Even if it is just a command line switch, it would eliminate
all plugins from affecting the core server. This might avoid a lot of red
herrings that turn out to be due to a plugin that has been neglected or
forgotten having been installed.
