Hello,
i have the same problem. Every minute my CPU takes 100 % of cpu.
I just installed on a VMWARE-machine Moss2007 sp2 and June CU 2009.

I set in Diagnostic protocol the Timer of Error and unexpected. But nothing will be better. The machine is slow and we can not work with it.

In the sharepoint log at this time there are following entries:
