    fedora is already 13, it is advised to switch, you may not experience the problem in this version

    it could be a bug in xorg that was solved in a later release

    what applications are running when it is using high CPU? try using htop for a better view of what is going on as well

    This is proabaly a bug with a new(er) application and old(er) supporting libraries. I do not think filing a bug would help.
    What coopstah13 said.
    Get a rolling distro or upgrade.
