Why does yelp use 100% CPU load?

Hi, everyone

yelp uses almost 100% CPU load when I open it through System -> Help, or command line. There is no error or warning message. How could I handle this issue? Thanks for help!

Is yelp generating a sound event as it opens? I've noticed that some sound drivers (or applications using them) max out the CPU for a little while.

Try turning off sound events if that's your problem.

Note: Just guessing here.
