Hi Peter,

rpm -qa qt3

The strange thing is can run lots of other apps simultaneously without any 
issue. Having open OO.o with a 200 page text, including heavy formatting and 
lots of images, and editing a 40 MB image in GIMP, while running Seamonkey 
with 12 tabs open and writing emails with KMail is no issue at all. I can 
even watch a movie or listen to some music, but simply crawls with 
nothing else running besides KDE.

I'm really at a loss here.
