I believe it's caused by gnomeicu updating the display whenever it receives
an ICQ "packet".  It probably should only update the display every second,

Also, I think it blocks on some reads, because of the way it's designed.

Running as a separate process seems excessive to me.  With some careful
programming (and maybe some nonblocking io) it could run nicely.
