Pan is slow
When I run Pan to download zillions of headers from newsgroups, my system slows the heck down, like to get running properly again I might have to reboot or at least leave my window manager (windowmaker mostly, though I don't think that has anything to do with this issue) and re-enter to get my speed back.
Anyone know how I can fix Pan or suggest another good newsgroup reader, also good for downloading mp3s and other formats of audiobooks?
I have 512 meg of memory, am running Suse 10.1, though I think the same thing happens in Ubuntu. I haven't found another newsreader I like so far.
As long as I don't run Pan, everything seems to work great.
I'm running the latest release of Pan.
I see that others have similar problems because there are so many headers. I don't have the problem in, say, Windows.
