It might be a cohincidence, but I've noticed GTK-based apps becoming slow lately.
I have KDE, no Gnome (I'm a bit scared to install Gnome, last time it started with KDE in parallel) and some GTK libs installed as dependencies.
I mainly use Firefox and EasyTag. They become very slow. EasyTag scans twice when I enter a directory, Firefox does everything slow (might be the plugins as well, but it worked fine before). I can watch Gimp creating a new empty small picture and moving it from the top-left corner to the middle of the Gimp's area. Thebrush remains far behind the mouse pointer. Inkscape takes 5 seconds to maximize its window (with the default empty document).
The CPU is at maximum 36% and the memory at 1.7 GB of 6 GB at most.
Am I alone?
