Package: xfce4-mailwatch-plugin
Version: 1.1.0-1
Severity: normal

Since the latest update of the, I experienced phases of heavy CPU use in
regular intervals, effectively stalling all open applications.  

The system-load plugin showed 100 % CPU use and gps showed
xfce4-mailwatch-plugin on top of the list (with about 5% CPU use).

Deleting the plugin from the panel solved the problem (but now I don't have
a mail-watcher).

Could this be the problem mentioned in the latest Ubuntu package:

 xfce4-mailwatch-plugin (1.1.0-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * patches/01-xfce-bug-4494.patch: Add a patch from upstream
    svn to fix a 100% CPU usage bug (Xfce #4494).
