Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 408881
gnome-session slows all app startup after suspend/resume
Last modified: 2007-12-03 12:35:50 EST
Description of problem:
After a suspend/resume cycle, startup of X applications becomes much slower; it
takes 15+ seconds to start a program that started up in less than a second
before the suspend.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3. strace xterm (or whatever)
strace shows that xterm startup blocks for 15+ seconds trying to read a response
No user-noticeable blocking.
I'm currently using a Thinkpad T61, but I noticed the same behavior in Fedora 7
on a Thinkpad T41.
Adding my hostname to the 127.0.0.1 line in /etc/hosts fixed the slowdown;
apparently it happens because DNS is trying and failing to resolve my hostname.
