Some Steam Themes eat CPU...

Small PSA.

Has anyone noticed when using steam themes and just having the window open will eat cpu time? No games loaded.

I noticed this tonight while task manager was open that 1 cpu core would have about 75% load with window open, load would go away when steam is minimized to tray.

Using the theme "Compact" version 1.595 and an earlier copy would do this but the latest version 1.599 seems ok.
Using the theme "Air" also causes this high CPU usage.

When using the Default Skin, Invert and FaceIT themes seem fine and low/no cpu usage.

Are others running into this issue?!

Sorry, but I would never trust any 3rd party modifications messing with my Steam. I have too much money invested to ever take a chance just to make the interface a little more manageable.

All I see in my Settings is the stock skin option

If I could have a Console-based Steam client that would be awesome.
