Slow Rendering?

Hi to all,

I have an application that works perfectly, but rendering is
extremely slow (bringing up the application takes over 8
seconds, a popup window takes a little over 4). While I
realize that it isn't necessarily a guarantee that this is the
problem, stepping through the application with gdb shows that
the bulk of this (4-5 seconds) occurs when I try to show the
top widgets. However, if I take out all changes to the
background colors and fonts, the time drops to 3 seconds to
bring up the applicaton and < 1 second for popup windows. I
don't know if changing these via the rc file is faster, but
that option isn't available to me anyway since I won't know
what colors or fonts to use until run-time. Any ideas on
what's going on? I can supply some code if necessary.

Thanks for any help!


PS - I'm working on a sparc ultra 5 that runs Solaris 8, BUT
the application is running from a window where I've ssh'd to a
linux terminal that runs redhat 9 with a 2.4.20-18.9 kernel
