pd and clock cycles

Funny thing I noticed.
When I run pd with the default settings (-r 44100 -ada) no gem
(still.....) it eats up about 50% of the cpu cycles. Just when it's idle,
no patches open, audio off.
In the case of the same sampling rate but running in -dac mode it takes
about 1% when having something like one osc~.
I can run it fine in the -ada mode at -r 22050. Even a complex patch
doesn't take much cpu (well, within reason).
Any ideas about this behaviour?
