Installation went flawlessly. I used a DVD from a mirror site.

Screeen resolution is fine but movement actions are choppy. The test
versions (t1-t3) had smooth scrolling and smooth output. Not the
official relese.

I tried revising the mouse parameters, but this has not helped. I
will try some other techniques or request some hints.

How do I measure (on a figure of merit) the gui stuff. Well, aside
from the tests, for gui operation, I loaded the free cell solitaire
and began moving the cards. I can get to the target location before
the software / display catches up. This did not happen with Core5
tests 1 to test 3.
I see smooth card animation no matter how fast I move the card/mouse. What graphics card/chip do you use ?
$ grep -C 4 driver /var/log/Xorg.0.log

With the test verision I felt as if the solitaire game card movement
was as good as as in Core4, then we are with a winner.
As good as ? I would say it seems faster (with the standard open nv driver on an nvidia fx5600 card) !

It is perhaps choppy due to screen resolution or refresh frequencies.
I will retry and if it works out, I will let you know. Otherwise, I
would like help to make the game have more default dispatching
priority. .
What are those frequencies ? it would have to be pretty low to be causing the problems you are describing ?

I would like to know if others have find some quirks as well.
On one machine I noticed lots of disk activity after first maybe second boot. I found that beagle was doing indexing, perhaps top might show you a cpu hog ?

Good evening from Montreal
And good evening from au.melb
