As an afterthought to my last reply.. is there anything in particular
that shows the problem *always*, or a particular CVS build date that
shows the issue?

I do notice a tiny slow down having just done some serious edits to my
docs but things seem more stable in terms of drawing and usage feel.

However, I will not notice it as much as you.. XP 2600+, 1Gb DDR RAM

Anything to point out any issue will be of great help!
