What does the service gam_server process do?

I left my Fedora Core 3 machine logged in last night with the desktop locked. When I came in this morning I noticed my cpu utilization was at 100% and then it dropped off to normal immediately after I unlocked the workstation. I ran a netstat -tap and saw a connection closing the process was gam_server and the remote connection was and so I did a tracert to it and dig and then opened a web browser to it and it was a Google page. Just wondering what my machine is doing connecting to Google overnight when I didn't even have a browser open.

Any information would be much appreciated.
