What is the Slice dialog box doing?

Recently I did a CPU usage test on 3 slicers - see this page for details. When I tested Craftware (which is the fastest slicer by a good margin) I found that opening the Slice dialog box causes continuous CPU usage of about 30% on one CPU. This usage continued for as long as I had the Slice dialog open, even though no slicing (or anything else I could notice) was happening.

So I wonder if anyone (Janos?) can explain what is happening when the Slice dialog is open and what, if anything, whatever it is has anything to do with the actual slicing process.
