I have noticed to. My test box is a 128 MB RAM 500 mhz P3 old deskpro,
which was pretty fast under fc3t2 and Suse 9.1. But under fc3t3, fc2,
fc1, and rh9 it was (is) slow as... - it seems to be swapping much less
efficently. t2 and t3 was with the "as delivered on cd" kernels.

What is differce between t2 and t3? what happened?
