Xcode 4.1 and 100% CPU usage

Still needing to use Xcode 4.1 and find that it slowly consumes 100% CPU over time? Turns out there is a nasty bug in Xcode when you have WiFi sync enabled on iOS 5.x devices; Xcode continually tries to connect to these devices running the newer iOS and fails. Abysmally.

All is not lost, and if you install SIMBL, you can use a nifty plugin by evands on GitHub. It only loads itself in Xcode versions ≤ 4.1, and works around the issue.
