I agree, but this seems to be a bug in the underlying gnomecanvas to me
that causes it to behave nicely when dragged slowly enough, but go
berzerk if dragged to fast. I'm open for suggestions how to work around
this though.

Weeell. First, the thing is from s-c-date, anaconda isn't the culprit.
Second, as Martin said, this is to ease selecting "your" city in the map
(especially in regions with a high density of cities), not to show off.
Interfacing with Java and requiring accelerated 3D is not what I have in
mind for s-c-date ;-).
