Inkscape in overdrive

Yesterday, when using Inkscape, things started to get very slow. I got so fed up I shut Inkscape down. Later, when I went back to my laptop, I heard the fan working hard. I started System Monitor and saw that the cpus were on overdrive, working at nearly 100%, although I was not doing anything.

How can I identify the process which is causing the cpus to work so hard?

How is it possible that Inkscape could cause this even after it is shutdown?

Run 'top' to find high resource usage processes.

Thanks for that. Next time Inkscape does that, I'll run top, then kill whatever is 'top'.
