IIRC, didn't early versions of OS X have truly pitiful amounts of shared
memory available? Perhaps that is the reason.
So now I recompiled GTK 2.2.4 with SHM and I cannot sense any difference in behaviour. However scrolling in gnumeric is still as slow as before.
I must say that GTK 1.2 runs like a charm here, even without SHM. GIMP 1.2 starts in a couple of seconds with all plugins on a cache cold system and is snappy all over...
I really need to try 2.0 soon....
 Perceived feeling, as long as it's possible to occupy 100% of the CPU power by scrolling a bit with the mouse wheel and then watching it move for minutes it's still *much* *too* slow and this hasn't changed.
