Slow start of certain apps under Fluxbox
I'm running Flux (RPM 0.1.14-6mdk) under Mandrake 9.2. After playing with it for few days, I noticed the following problem. When I try to start certain apps, such as GEdit or Kate, it takes helluva time to load (from 1 to 5 min!). The result is the same if I run the app from the console or the Flux menu (huge load time). It affects only certain type(?) of apps, since, for example, Emacs or Xpdf load okay.
When running "ps -e", it displays the process (whether it is kate or gedit), but the program itself doesn't load to X (or it does, but I can't see it).
This only happened under Flux, since everything loaded perfectly under KDE/Gnome.
P.S. I started "top" in one console, and ran the app (GEdit) from another one. The process of GEdit is displayed in the first console (running "top"), but few second later it disappears. That's not right, IMHO.
