Constant high CPU utilization reported by conky (about 20-30% on a 2-core system), even if nothing is written to or read from ntfs partition. After downgrade to version 2011.4.12-2 problem solved.

Additional info:
* package version(s) 2012.1.15-2

Steps to reproduce:
Install ntfs-3g 2012.1.15-2, mount ntfs partition and wait -> results in high CPU use.
