So use KDE or make GNOME quicker.  Or get over it.

The current GNOME code has a lot of debugging stuff in it.  For a panel
applet, some messges will probably have to go through half-a-dozen
different layers, and if each of those is checking and sanitising data
then things will get slow.

I've yet to find GNOME slower than KDE on my lowly K6-200..
