I was using the default (Raleigh) engine, which IIRC is supposed to be the fastest. Other supposedly fast GTK2 engines, e.g. Mist, are similarly sluggish. Some applications (Midori, Rox) are faster than others (Abiword, PCManFM) but all of them are slow enough that using them is difficult.

FWIW the video controller is a Neomagic model, and I'm running it at 16 bit color and 1024x768 resolution (the laptop's native res), using the neomagic driver. I've tried the vesa driver too, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of difference.
