Gnome speed probs on a AMD 2400+ / GFMMX 64MB ??


hi

i have a strange problem with my linux suse 8.0 distri running with gnome.
sometimes gnome seems to slow down for example if you try to minimize a window or open up a gconsole. This strange behaviuor occur at random time. I cant figure out why this happens. This is what my /var/log/warn says:

why does my box try to load this 2 modules although i cant find them listed nor outcommented in my /etc/modules.conf. This is the output of lsmod

And i dont know whats the meaning of that gconf error I have a ntfs partition mounted from i which i play all my mp3s, i thought that maybe this mountpoint is the reason for that strange gnome behaviour but although without that drive mounted it occurs.

The output of /var/log/messages
