[Rpcemu] 0.8.10/5.20: MIPS readout oddity

I've been running 0.8.10/5.20 daily for about a week now, and have 
noticed an oddity relating to the MIPS readout on the header bar, 
which seems to display activity (sometimes /a lot/ of activity - up to 
1400 on one occasion(!) and generally around 250-350 on my system*) 
regardless of whether any application is active (i.e., when TaskUsage 
will be displaying '0' or low single-figure activity levels). I 
haven't noticed this with any previous 5.xx version or 4.02, where in 
both cases the MIPS display conformed pretty closely to activity as 
perceived on the desktop. Selecting Settings-Reduce CPU Usage doesn't 
seem to affect the behaviour. Windows Task Manager gives the same 
readout as MIPS.

It's not actually a problem functionally, but I just wonder if 
something is going on that shouldn't be, and whether anyone else has 
seen similar behaviour?
