K Menu tends to hang

Description of problem:
When using KDE, there is often a long wait involved in getting the K
menu or any of its sub-menus to appear. Then, once appearing, the menu
can take a lot of time disappearing when clicking off of its field.
This doesn't happen for me in GNOME. Sometimes, hitting the ALT key or
ALT-TABing my way to an app causes the menu to finally disappear. When
it isn't exhibiting this behavior, the menu system behaves very
slowly. At worst, this is a usability issue where something somewhere
needs to get optimized a little.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clicking on the K Menu
2. Try to navigate to a sub-menu or try to click off of the menu's
field to get rid of the menu.
Actual Results: The menu will frequently hang, or the system itself
will hang until the menu appears--sometimes until ALT or ALT-TAB is
pressed. Mouse movement is still possible.
Expected Results: Swift appearance/disappearance of the menu.
Apologies if this bug isn't a kdebase bug, but it occurs only in KDE
and with high frequency. I am uncertain what else this might be
Same thing here, but I'm using fedora core 1. The problem first
appeared when I updated to kde 3.2.1
sorry, it cannot reproduce this problem with FC3. it works for me.
Benjamin, could you please verify it with FC3? Thanks
