slow evince and remote X



evince, and other postscript/pdf display programs are extremely slow
over remote X displays. This is on a 10M/bit switched network.

ghostview in FC1 also was also slow compared to what it was around RH 7
but the new evince (0.4.0-1.2 and older) are so slow that they are not
usable for remote displays. kghostview and kpdf are slightly better
but still slow.

Other programs like ooffice and even "gs -sDEVICE=x11" work very well
with remote X.

Anyone else seeing this?
