Now I installed KiCAD 20090216 on vista64 and recognized that drawing of grids in pcbnew and eeschema is
always very slow. Which is disturbing when I navigate by point and zoom. I am using graphics acceleration
which works fine for the visualization of PCBs. Does anyone else recognize this problem or is that problem

The problem is know and it affects every platform using composited desktop drawing. Current grid drawing and graphics code needs serious work. Well see what happens after Wayne gets his updates to the tree.

My guess is that if you disable 'aero' or what ever that Vista compositor is, you'll get bearable performance. At least on linux that helps.
