As the chap who has done a heck of a lot of the performance changes, I
can honestly say I've not come across anything like this on any of my
systems. If it is a problem, I need to get it sorted now as I've sent to
Franz another couple of hundred K of changes, all of which do improve
the speed.

Can you supply me with the following to see if I can spot the boo-boo

1. Kernel version
2. Qt version
3. g++ version
4. Desktop (Gnome/KDE/Ximian etc)

If you can also verify it is scribus which is snarling things up by
opening a terminal window and running gnome-system-monitor and checking
it's not a KDE problem (you'll see a list with percentages next to it -
if scribus is at fault, it'll register a high figure, otherwise it will
register almost zero).

The other thing to try is to rename your original scribus directory and
do a fresh checkout and also rename your .scribus.rc file. Again, it
could just be something getting snarled up.

Unlikely to be the KDE problem.

It's on the developers CVS, should be on the anoncvs shortly (Franz
usually does that update).


One OS to fool them all
One browser to find them
One email client to bring them all
And through security holes, blind them...
