Banshee might be doing a background job, like saving metadata to file,
moving/renaming files/folders, calculating BPM, etc.  You can verify
it isn't by mousing over the icon/img in the very lower-left corner of
the Banshee window.  It'll have a tooltip if it's doing something.

Beyond that, you can run the `kill` command mentioned on when the CPU goes
crazy.  If you run that a few times, it can help to identify what
Banshee is doing when that happens.  And of course, file a bug with
that log.
