Shortly after launch, CPU usage by the application rises to 100% (measured by htop) with occasional minor drops.

For a while, it seemed that excessive usage occurred only when the Overview tab was active. 

Whenever I clicked the History tab, usage dropped. Then whenever I reviewed the Overview, usage skyrocketed to 100%; as if viewing History was a workaround. 

After removing everything from the Overview tab, usage no longer dropped when History was viewed. 

After removing/hiding _everything_, usage remained excessive.

Around thirty percent (less excessive) reported by a user of 13.0-RELEASE at and under <https://forums.freebsd.org/posts/543488>.
