I suppose you mean this one, right? (I tried that one you suggested but
I couldn't notice any difference)


At least that's the one I tried. The pixmap engine is now faster! And it
probably makes sense to cache the pixmaps that is used all the time
everywhere in all apps... So maybe the pixmap-engine  pixmaps should be
cached even if the user doesn't want the actuall apps to cache their

It's still a bit slow to be usable though... And I'm pretty sure that
it's been faster a while ago.

By the way, if the cache is disabled, you can easily see how
inefficient the pixmap theme is. When resizing apps, the widgets get
redrawn between 2 and 3 times.
