Do you have comms/usbmuxd installed? I seem to recall an issue where
it could cause one of the Gnome related processes to go to 100%. I
just don't recall if it was gamin, but I removed the usbmuxd port and
those dependent on it, all of which involved iPod tools.

If this is the case, it happens in Linux, too, so the maintainer my
not be able to help as the problem is upstream
