i was going to argue with you until ....

i went and tried it!
jeez even place line (not track) with no connectivity or anything 
much on the board chews up 100% CPU continually !!

you don't even have to be drawing or holding the mouse button

it doesn't seem to effect typing this though, i left it in place line
and 
switched to this email and it's still chugging away at full 100% usage

i then tried a few simple tasks and sluggishness was hardly noticeable
including opening a jpg in PSP and editing it

so i guess i am not sure what 100% usage really means

> Open your task manager & go to the performance tab.
> Open a Protel PCB & press P-T. (Place track.)
> Watch your CPU utilization & laugh.
