BINGO, Patrick!

Thanks you a hundred thousand times, that was exactly my problem!
I already wanted to write about hildon-input-method crashing and 
consuming about 90-96% of CPU time.
Now you were faster than my thoughts ;-)
So is it all about broken autocompletion dictionaries? Doh!

Here is the solution from your link (for the conveniency of others 
falling into the same issue):

    1) Run xterminal and "sudo gainroot"
    2) "cd /home/user/.osso/"
    3) "mv dictionaries olddics"
    4) Restart your phone

How do they get broken? (I don't expect you to answer this question.)
/usr/bin/hildon-input-method is really the worst battery killer I have 
I'm watching my battery using BatteryGraph continuously.
Now I'm going to bed to move my broken dictionaries out of the way ;-)
Maybe we should raise a bug:

 1. The dictionaries shouldn't get broken by autocompletion software itself.
 2. If the dictionaries get broken somehow, the hildon-input-method
    program should not crash or behave in such a buggy way that it
    consumes all available CPU time.

Should I raise the bug or is anyone here to take the initiative? Could 
you recommend me where to open it? Should this bug's fix be implemented 
by the CSSU team?

Many thanks for you all, guys! I'd be helpless without you. This is what 
I really love about open source communities 8-)
