Ok, i've tried to add some hundreds of TTF in the user ~/.fonts dir
(something more than 800) and i've done the extra step to configure X
to use them via XFS but i couldn't reproduce it. I didn't noticed any
slowdown either.

To be fair, X picked the extra fonts regardless if the XFS line was
present or not in my xorg.conf, so i'm not sure if i've replicated the
same scenario of the submitter, but i'm tempted to close it anyway.
