What sort of CPU do you have?

May just be because the limbo2 kernel has a bunch of debug goo in it.

Athlon XP 1700+ aka 1.47ghz, should be plenty fast.

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

I think this relates to some focus problem with Sawfish, though that is just a
guess. Doesn't seem to matter which focus mode.
