When view generation starts ( or when I access views )
'couchjs' starts and at that time Futon "Status" shows "View Group  
Indexer" running
'couchjs' goes away and Futon "Status" shows "No tasks running"
this things take under 30 seconds
.db_design/ directory size increase 1.6 MB every-time I access view  
and when couchjs running

After couchjs finish strange things start
'beam' process now starts consuming 40-45% CPU and keep running until  
I respawn with "couchdb -k"
.db_design/ directory size remains same so nothing written to disk

Above issue not happen with Mac OS X
