[mythtv-users] Very slow navigation in guide

What I'm seeing is that after installation, it'll work fine. Text is white
and there's no delay or lag when the menus are drawn.

I'm using the current MythDora on a system with a Soyo KT600 Dragon, a
Sapphire Tech 9600 card, AMD XP 2600+ and 2mb ram. Plenty of disk space,

At some point, it starts out with the text being garish in color or black
and each step of the redraw takes longer and longer. I sit and watch each
progression of the menu effects and eventually, it takes five minutes for
the menu to redraw completely. Going into the deeper menus gives me all the
menus transparently.

If I go to the MythDora Setup, I get great color. I can go through the
various control panels. I was able, finally, to get the Edimax 7128g
wireless card compiled and installed, but afterwards I started getting the
bizarre theme behavior. I thought it might have been changing things to
different fonts or to OpenGL instead of the defaults, but setting them back
didn't help.

I tried to get into the Backend Setup again, but had to do it in root. Now,
the front end won't start at all. I'm basically hosed at this point.
