Description of problem:
gv is very slow rendering documents with antialiasing turned on.  Performance in
older versions (RH 7.2) was much faster.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a postscript document with gv.
2. Turn on antialiasing.
3. Watch it redraw.

Actual Results:  Very slow rendering of document (on a 1.3Ghz Athlon).

Additional info:

ggv doesn't suffer from the same slowness (but it can't open many PDFs that gv
can), nor did the version of gv that came with RH 7.2.

I have reported this earlier for rawhide...if you get the source rpm and 
remove the "alpha" patch it'll go back to being fast again. 
What version of gs are you using? I ask this because I am not sure why 
we have the alpha patch that seems to change some gs options.

I'm personally too lazy to mess with the source rpm, but thanks for the tip.

I'm using the version of ghostscript that comes with RH 7.3.
  $ rpm -q ghostscript
