Is scrolling still slow if you save your file under another name and use 
that?

Is scrolling still slow if you take out your inserts (figures, notes)

To my knowledge this is 3 minutes. You may want to read this recent

I guess it depends, but when you through in R computations via Sweave
you can easily hit 3 minutes as well as 3 hours.

This is a nice idea. Unfortunately alarm() makes no noise on my
system---I guess it's some small configuration issue---, but this
reminds me of system(). So one can do something similar:

done,echo=FALSE=
system(play /tmp/03Miserere.ogg)

It makes the LyX status bar go crazy, but otherwise seems to work just fine.

I'm wondering: does LyX have a LFUN_SYSTEM_COMMAND or similar that
would allow to execute arbitrary system commands?
