My desktop is REAL slow.
Here is an example that something is awry.. if I run
# truss -o /tmp/truss xfce4-tips
and click CLOSE immediately when the window is launched (it takes about
60 seconds) the truss file is large (76MB):
# ls -s /tmp/truss
# grep -c '/usr/local/share/icons/gnome' /tmp/truss
# find /usr/local/share/icons/gnome | wc -l
/tmp/truss | grep volume-min | wc -l
Things seem to go ape shit after this line in the truss output:
open("/usr/local/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders",O_RDONLY,00) = 5 (0x5)
So, here are the questions:
why does gdk-pixbuf have to stat every icon 125 times for a total of
500,000+ stats just to launch one little window?
I can repeat the process with 'Terminal' and other programs...

THanks for any tips... running cvsup right now and attempting to upgrade
(if possible) pixbuf
