Long running issue with client massively increasing resource usage after cluster has shutdown

For over a year now

If I leave my clients logged in after downtime they hugely increase their resource usage

Obviously a work around is to log out/close clients before or at downtime

But last night I forgot

And my computer hard crashed as a result

I already know it hugely increases the draw on CPU
But I have a feeling it also maxs out the GFX card

Which I will check tonight

But could CCP please do something about this as its a bit of a problem if the game is doing this

I would rather not come home to burnt out computer

I've posted a bug report

Reproduction steps
Leave client running after down time, then look at your CPU and GFX card usage
May also work on a socket close but I'm unsure as I haven't had one of those in a long time
