[gst-devel] Performance problem

I'm using the debian packages of gstreamer 0.6.2. I tried a simple
  gst-launch filesrc location=somefile.mp3 ! spider ! artsdsink

I was surprised that it gstreamer eats 10% cpu on a pentium 4 1.7GHz. Is it 
a known issue ? Is there any way to know where is the problem without 
recompiling the library ?

I'm also begginning to develop an application using gstreamer for audio & 
video filtering. I'd like to know if it would be better if I use the CVS, 
or if I can use 0.6 ?
