[OS X Emacs] text selection for idle Emacs (Aquamacs 3.x) on Mac

I have just observed that an idle Emacs (Aquamacs 3.x) on MacOS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) consumes 0.5% CPU (as reported by the Activity Monitor), if no text is selected. However, if a few lines of text are selected, the (otherwise idle) process reports 3.5% CPU - I observed the same behaviour in Org-mode, for a PHP document and in dired so this points to a problem with text selection in general. Is this a known issue? - I know that the 3.x Aquamacs version is not yet released but it is otherwise already working fairly well for me.

Many thanks in advance.
