Hi Robert,

The expression "terrible performances" was maybe not the best way to express
myself. My intentions were not to step on anyone's toe or being nasty. Sorry
about that.

To describe things shortly, the problem is responsiveness. I have been running
FreeBSD since 4.7 and never experienced what I am experiencing now:
- Bad responsiveness of the desktop
- Temporary freeze (10 to 30s)
- Slow mouse (and not a very smooth movement, a kind of 'step by step')

It may be the X drivers you are using. X is a bit goofed up in the latest version running on 7, and the drivers seem to create interrupt storms that tie up a system.

You may want to test in X and not in X performance.
