V1.339 increase in BB CPU usage

I just upgraded to V1.339 from V1.336. I'm been running wsprdaemon 2.5a on 7 of 8 channels for over a week. I noticed that the BB CPU utilization went up from ~50% to ~70% immediately after upgrading. I was pleased with wsprdaemon greatly reducing the BB CPU usage over the built-in wspr extension. In fact it dropped about 20%.
I don't know if this is an issue, just thought you may be interested. My wspr receiving station is still working normally.

    As mentioned in several earlier threads BB cpu time is meaningless. It's supposed to be 100% as the Kiwi software runs flat-out all the time. It's only less than that with multiple connections because of kernel wait time due to the synchronous nature of the SPI driver.
