Re: Severe slowness after switching to 256.44
It seems even with compositing off, it still gets slow. It just takes longer.
xrestop shows about 100MB of pixmaps. That doesn't seem that unreasonable, at least not out of the ordinary, and the machine has plenty of free ram still. No excess cpu use, but switching windows takes half of a second, to a couple seconds.
It is very annoying.
