Interestingly, it doesn't happen with QtLauncher, so this is probably
not a WebKit issue per se, but a gdk port issue only.

Trying to get a stacktrace during the CPU hogging seems to indicate a
loop involving libfontconfig, but the stacktrace is somehow b0rked.
It might be worth doing a test with compiler optimizations turned off.
