1)	He's running Gnome 2.2, not 2.3.x

2)	The version is probably less important than the compiler
	that was used to compile it

3)	Start looking at free memory with only the kernel being
	different between the tests, instead of changing all sorts
	of variabls at once, or you'll never convince anyone that
	what you think is the problem is actually the problem
