That sounds different.  He's talking about a 10-15 second lag every
time because he was using opengl with a card/driver that had no opengl
support.  That's a crazy way to configure a system.  In my case, the
menu transitions are almost always fine, but occasionally (maybe once
or twice a week) it'll get hung up in mid-transition for 10-15
seconds.  It always seems to be pretty random and unpredictable when
it will happen.  I have an nVidia GT220 in this system, which should
be more than capable of handling menu transitions.
