I'm running F8 on 2 separate systems - a desktop and a laptop. The
desktop uses the 32-bit version and the laptop has the 64-bit version.
Outside of hardware differences forcing this, both systems are otherwise
set up pretty much the same.

On both systems, I am noticing general "pokiness", if not outright
slowness, when manipulating files and folders. It's worse when Desktop
Effects is turned on. Several apps seem to be affected, including Adobe
Reader, Document Viewer (evince), and VMware Workstation 6.0.2. It's at
its worst when any of these applications are actively running -
especially VMware Workstation.

I tend to agree this is not a problem with Adobe Reader per se, and I
also (with prompted memory), recall that this was not the case as
recently as 2 or 3 weeks ago. I would also suspect an update to X,
Compiz, or Nautilus along the way is the more likely culprit, but I
couldn't say that with absolute certainty.

It definitely should be looked into. I'm happy to bugzilla, but I'm not
sure what I should file this one under since I don't really know where
to start looking for the problem. Ideas?



In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice there is.
