Thanks you for this detailed help.  I didn't even know about the gconf-editor
tool.  I made the change and now the desktop is working much more smoothly.
I can't imagine why Sun would ship Gnome 2.0 with this property disabled
and then ship 2.6 with it enabled.  Now that I understand how to modify these
parameter, I'll take a look at what else I can adjust.  Thanks again.
