hi, i am really fan of DrPython using it on Windows
but on Linux FC3 i was very surprised by the observation
that documents scroll very slow, typing is slow as well,
and DrPython gets large amount of memory, and
what is even more intersting big part of X-memory.

For example, for 10 not too large opened files:
80 Mb and 40 Mb of X Server Memory!
...and more when i start working.

Thank you in advance :-)

    Hello Alexander,

    not much help here :(

    Does it happen, when you have open several documents or is one
    open document enough for a significant slowdown?

    What about the wxpython demo itself? Are the
    StyledTextControl demos also very slow?

    Then you could report it in the wxPython user mailing list.
    Have you installed for instance spe from stani.
    Is it also comparably slow?

    I think several documents make it slow.

    yes, I've noticed this too. The folks at wxPython need help.
    You are probably using the gtk2 port. The gtk1 port is
    wholesome, fast, and stable. I highly recommend it.

    I'd also recommend chiming in to wxPython, or even better,
    letting the gnome folks know gtk2 needs, more than anything
    else, speed enhancements.

    This is an issue for wxPython though.
