Bug description:
  For a couple of days now (I assume since recent Unity updates), my Laptop is 
performing more an more poor throughout the day. First 2-3 hours Unity is 
running smoothly (Dash, HUD, etc.) Afterwards, opening Dash or HUD and even 
switching workspaces and starting applications becomes very slow. Sometimes I 
have to restart lightdm from a tty-console or reboot.
  Running "top" in a terminal shows that a process called "hud-service" is 
consuming up to 60% of CPU and RAM resources.

  My hardware should be perfectly able to cope with 13.04 (Dell Latitude
  E5420, quad-core, 8GB RAM) and was until about two weeks before.
