True, being correct every single time doesn't hurt either. :) > PS I learned today that gnome actually uses gnome-terminal rather than > xterm. It does, and it definitely could stand some performance improvements. I don't think it's _vastly_ slower than xterm (once it's started), but it does often get in the way. I think it was Warren who mentioned that he has to minimize gnome-terminal when he's doing a noisy compile otherwise it significantly slows down. That's certainly true for me too (although I just toggle to another tab), but I'm not sure if the real problem is with gnome-terminal, pango, or the underlying font system -- or perhaps at layers even lower than that, like really bad or non-existent Render support in the video driver. Cheers, Jason.
