nmap CPU usage with slow scans

I apologize if this is the wrong list for a 
question like this one.  

Is there any way to reduce the CPU usage while 
nmap is doing a slow scan?  When set to -T0 for 
example, nmap uses 99% cpu on the linux and 
sparc solaris machines I've tested it on. 

Is this stupid user syndrome, or a bug in nmap?
