Automatic Updates Consuming 100% CPU

For a couple months now I've been observing the Automatic Updates service (wuauserv) causing high CPU load on hosts running Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP after new updates had been released. The problem vanished after the updates had been installed.

Apparently this is a problem with the Windows Update Agent, caused by inefficient handling of superseded updates. Installing the latest cumulative Internet Explorer update should resolve the problem.
