Gnome menus slow to load first time after reboot

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7
Description of problem:
Reboot the system. Log in. Access any item in the Gnome menus.
It's slow, isn't it?
Please configure gnome-panel (or something) to read menus/icons ahead.
Or maybe it's not a gnome-panel issue per se. Either way, those menus and icons should already be loaded after login, waiting for user interaction. It's not nice to delay that until the first time the user wants to use them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
Actual Results: Gnome menus are slow to load after reboot/logon
Expected Results: menus should be fast at all times
I agree with the above- Expected Results: menus should be fast at all times
This should be addressed. I can't remember the older gnomes being this way...
Many new users to linux see this major delay and get turned off pretty fast from
gnome and linux.
I noticed this problem when I created an account for my 4 year old son, to play
SuperTux. He knows how to find the game in the Gnome menus, but gets confused by
the initial slow response.
The application, places and system menus for FC5T1 seem to be quicker responding
than FC4 menus on first launch. This problem does make one wonder why "GNOME is
so slow" - I did not comment or file a bug on this menu behavior, it does need
Just a note that the extreme lag to activate the menus is not present in FC5T1.
The problem still hampers FC4.
All systems migrated to FC5. Slowness is an FC4 feature
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Using FC6, the bug is gone now. Thanks!
