I've been running Gnome 2 (RH8) for a while now, and it seems that every now and then moving windows around the screen is very laggy. I can temporarily fix this by going into the "Change Desktop Background" dialog and changing it to something and then changing it back again. I can't pin down what triggers the lagging but it gets quite annoying when I am busy. Has anyone else experienced this?
No no, it's just the normal desktop background. Sometimes after switching to a different workspace, moving normal windows around the screen is laggy. If I 'reload' the wallpaper, the lag disappears... I know it's hard to describe, but it's also quite irritating.
