I a very similar sounding problem with my system, currently running 0.19.1.
Some of the menus are slow some of the time. 
e.g. when I go into the recorded programs menu, it responds quickly. If I then watch a recording, and exit back to the recorded programs menu it takes at least a second for each movement of the selection. If I exit out one level (back to the media library menu) and then come back into the recorded programs menu, it is quick again. This is consistently the case.
I find it hard to believe that video drivers are the cause of my problem.

Is your problem the same as mine, or is it something different?
I haven't tried SVN, but will be upgrading to 0.20 as soon as its ready.
