Stable 3126 insane CPU usage


I’ve basically had to stop using Sublime due to excessive CPU usage. Essentially, the usage is so high that my MacBook heats up, the fan is running at 100% and despite having a charger connected, the battery is draining at about 1% per minute (i.e., faster than using any other app without the charger connected).

What makes this even more difficult to pin down is that I have deleted all packages, cleared the Cache and Index directories, and I’ve checked that the Indexing status says “Idle”, and this still happens. I really don’t know what else I can do to prevent Sublime from killing my computer, or how to find out the cause. What information can I provide to debug this?

Computer: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014)
OS: macOS Sierra 10.12 (this also happened in Capitan)
Sublime version: Stable 3126
