Question Xfree86 and Cpu Time

Im running Mepis 2003.10 on the 2.6.7 kernel installed on the hard drive. When I start up in Kde, Xfree86 runs at about 5% user cpu time but for some reason after a couple hours Xfree86 starts to use about 85% user cpu time. Xfree86 is version 4.3.0-0pre1v4. I am running the computer via realVNC. Any ideas as to how to remedy this?
