Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 734612
Desktop running dog slow with certain applications
Last modified: 2011-11-08 07:53:12 EST
Description of problem:
Window redraw is incredibly slow with libreoffice and any mono application using winforms
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the rawhide libreoffice and select any menu
2. Run any winform mono application with a menu or dropdown box
Redraw is incredibly slow with menu items or buttons (on modal windows) missing until the mouse goes over them
No slow down
Using the latest rawhide kernel on a machine with masses of empty drive space and 4Gb of memory (nice juicy video card in as well)
Not gnome-desktop3, that's just a library for specific GNOME shared stuff. I'll reassign to libreoffice to see if one of them can help you debug this.
winform mono stuff is of course unrelated to libreoffice
It happens with a number of other applications on gnome, but not under KDE or xfce with the same applications.

Can't see a problem in GNOME on F-15 or F-16 with LibreOffice anyway with large or small icons. I'd blame some other component if I could guess where the problem lies. X is my usual suspect.
