What is cvmsComp_x86_64?

This process was running under my name when I opened the Activity Monitor and using about 50% of CPU. What is it? A sample is attached.

Apparently it is a system process that runs periodically doing something related to Apple's OpenGL implementation in Snow Leopard:

I.e., it is "normal".
