Of course. One machine that experiences problems is an Atom-based netbook (MSI 
Wind) with Intel 945GME graphics, running Kubuntu 9.04 (KDE-Desktop). Find 
attached the output of lspci.

Let me know if I can help with more information.

I also experienced the same problems on a PC with an Intel Core2 Processor and 
an NVidia graphics card (I believe it's a 7900GS, but I am not sure), also 
running Kubuntu 9.04. That machine is currently out of reach, so I don't have 
an lspci output.

I am pretty sure that pcbnew did run fast enough with an earlier version of 
the OS on the latter machine. However, I could not find another software that 
showed a similar performance regression (I tried several other wxWidget-based 
programs). Maybe I'll find time to run the Phoronix test suite to further 
analyze if it's the OS/xorg/whatever.

Sorry about that, that was unintentionally.
