CPU usage Geogebra 5.0 constantly high

Happy new year everyone.

I tried to model a “Lawson Klein Bottle” in Geogebra 5.0.


Everything is working fine but the javaw.exe process keeps using

98% of one of my 8 CPU's. (13% of total CPU)

There is nothing rotating in the Graphics View 3D and I don’t use animation.

Even when I minimize the Geogebra window to the windows-taskbar the CPU usage stays 13%.

It seems like java is constantly recalculating the view or something like that.

When I’m rotating “the graphics View 3D” the UCP usage stays the same 13%.

So I wonder, is this normal behavior for GeoGebra 5.0

or may I have a problem with my Java installation?

I am using:

GeoGebra (Java 1.7.0_40-32bit) 02 October 2013.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bits Service Pack 1.

Radeon (TM) HD 6490M

Java: Version 7 Update 45 (build 1.7.0_45-b18)
