running a simpe SELECT statement causes high CPU load

Workbench version 5.2.43 CE Revision 9869
I'm relatively new to MySQL and the Workbench but I've noticed about half the time or more when I enter simple SELECT statements in Workbench the CPU usage on my local machine where MySQL is installed spikes up to around 60%. It will stay that way for several minutes, maybe longer. I can stop this by going to the Output window, right clicking and selecting CLEAR. One of the visible cues is that while the CPU load is high as in this situation, the icons (in the left most column of the Output window) appear to be flickering or repainting at a high rate. While searching for a solution to this I've noticed similar bugs such as bug #13642999, and bug #64077 but they were supposedly fixed in Workbench 5.2.41. Thanks.
P.S. This is running on Windows XP SP3
