Default Font AntiAliasing/Subpixel Hinting Slow?

I just got a new monitor, an LCD.
I enabled font AA and Subpixel hinting in KDE.
When I scroll around in Konqueror, X jumps to 99% CPU usage.

I'm on XORG 6.8.2, using the nvidia driver.

Enabling or disabling renderaccell doesn't seem to have much of an effect. Is this normal? Apps that draw a lot of fonts update slow if I scroll around fast.

Toss this thread :P
It also seems to only affect KDE apps..although I'm not sure if subpixel hinting works in GTK apps?

Edit 2: Doesn't matter, even with subpixel hinting off regular old AA is slow in QT apps but GTK seem OK... Odd....very odd..
