99% CPU usage?  That's definitely odd.

Which operating system and compiler?  CPU type?  PERL version?

What happens when you run this:
  perl swishspider ./testing

Does this take 5-10 minutes and use 100% CPU?

Your config file and command line options are working fine here using
the current CVS under Redhat 7.1.  SWISH-E's average CPU load is 0.1%
with your config on my 1 GHz Athlon.
