Not much help really, but I can confirm that this is a CPU hog on Win7. Varies from 30 - 60 percent total CPU time.

Alex ran it on XP, and it was much less resource intensive. It appears from some Google'ing that was done that GDI+ is now routed through DWM in Vista / Win7 and no longer takes advantage of hardware graphics acceleration as it did in XP.
