I'm not sure what framebuffer I am using.  I'm sure it is the low-end standard
19" color monitor that came with 1+'s.

I have 40 meg of real memory.  I am sure it is not thrashing (I would hear it).

It probably takes from 0.3 to 1.0 seconds or so to sprout.  Also when I grab
and drag, it sometimes misses it entirely and othertimes nothing happens for a
second and then the object jumps to the location of my mouse.

Also, it doesn't really seem to be any slower at first, and then get faster
with use.  But there is quite a bit of variability in the response of
identical actions.

Hope this helps and I am pleased to hear the size and performance issues are
being worked on.
