   Yes, sorry for being vague.  The thing I really notice is
   moving the cursor around inside windows (terminals, editors,
   etc.).  Opening new terminals/windows is a tad slower...they
   don't quite pop up, there's a barely noticeable delay.  It's
   not a major slowdown and still runs faster than my PII-333
   system (this PC is a PIII-750).  Basically it's a slight drop
   in screen reponse.

   I keep checking using gnome monitor, ps, top, etc., and I'm
   not finding any processes that shouldn't be running nor any
   processes taking up more resources than they should.  I'm 
   focusing on the Xwindows processes since screen response is
   the issue.
