Extreme CPU usage w/ BgBuddy?

Hi all,
I just got Dropline for Slack 9. I decided, hey, background buddy looks cool. So I downloaded it and put it in my binpath. No problems. I go to start it, again OK. When it is running , however, my CPU usage jumps from like 3% to 99%. Has anyone else had this happen in Flux or WM or Gnome?

Unhappy Extreme CPU usage w/ BgBuddy?

Is this still an issue? What does your wallpaper path look like? Does top show bgbuddy to be racing your CPU to 100%? You may want to install the latest version off of my website.
