Don't know if it's totally fixed, but since I did another reinstall few
days ago, it is running much better.  But being the 3rd install of F8
and running slow both times, I think the slowness was not due to
anything from the install itself.  

I believe the reason it was slowing up, was maybe because of the theme I
was running, which I had changed to Nodoka and echo-icon-theme.  But
this time, I chose the Fedora theme, then customized to echo-icon-them.
Don't know if they are the same theme (they look the same?) or not, but
it sure works now like it's suppose to.

Anyway, don't think anyone replied to original email, so doubt this
matters, but sending it out anyway , just in case.
