My Intel Core Duo MBP has been sickly lately; running VERY hot all the time and just not so great. I looked at the activity monitor last night and found the FINDER was using 185% of my processor capacity. I rebooted and that seems to have quieted that down, but this morning I see that "Locum" the root user is using 101% of my processor capacity . . . and the temperature is going up.

What is Locum, why is so demanding, and is there a fix?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.


MBP, 1.5G Ram, 80 GB, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
