Can we consider this again?  BTW, the slowdown is apparently due
to kernel changes between 2.0.23 and 24 (linux/include/net/sock.h)
- it's not a problem with X itself.  The original report compared
different X versions on different kernels - not a good comparison.

I know we now have a freeze, but I think the XFree 3.2 upgrade
should be considered a bugfix.
