Look in the frontend configuration.  Somewhere in there there is a
setting for "menu drawing method."  Change it to one of the lower cpu
useage ones.  Trying to do something like transparencies on a slow
system with no video hardware is not an easy thing.

It's not a general myth problem, my menus are quite responsive.
