If you do a "top d 0.5" or something while doing this, what is using CPU?
Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2002-08-13 18:17:01 EDT
Well if I continue to move the pointer back and forth the terminal window
doesn't update, but just after stopping gnome-panel is at the top of the list at

This behavior seems unique to Sawfish 2.0. I don't see this with metacity.
