[dsc] CPU problem

Hi all,

I've joined this mailing list cause I have what I would assume to be an
unusual problem.
I have 5 name servers running bind 9 and with similar setup.

DSC works on all of them but causes problem on the fifth.
It uses 100% CPU on one core.
I tried updating the entire system (apt-get update && apt-get upgrade). It
did not help.
DSC is installed using a configuration manager so installation is identical.

On all servers it spawns two processes, these two
/usr/bin/dsc -p /var/run/dsc-statistics-collector/dsc-collector_default.cfg
\_ [dsc] <defunct>

But on that faulty server after a short while it starts eating the CPU. And
it doesn't seem to be so more DNS usage on that nameserver.
The version is 201106061022-4, which is the one found in Ubuntu 12.04
(precise) repos.
$ cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS \n \l

How should I continue with this? Can't have one of two cores running at
100% all the time.
