System slows down when large area is selected
I just installed KDE 3.5 on Suse 10.0. The problem is when I try to select large groups of icons on the desktop or in konqueror the whole system slows down while I'm moving the mouse. CPU usage jumps to 100%. I've seen absolutely the same thing in different version of kde and different distros. I suspect it's all caused from the way selections are drawn on the monitor (with transparency). If someone knows how to fix that pls reply.
I have AMD semptron processor 3100+, 512 MB RAM, nvidia GeForce FX 5500 with nvidia drivers installed
