hud-service is consuming too much recources

Status in hud package in Ubuntu:
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.
