I'm sorry. A better assessment might have been "Not enough improvement".

I've measured the network traffic now, and it's been lowered to about a third
compared to standard X-forwarding. Still, it's five times higher than
RHEL4/Sarge with X-forwarding, and still too slow to be acceptable.

I guess it's time for me to open a case with Sun and/or look for alternatives to
Sun Ray. Thanks for the tip though.
