Bug#643712: general: GNOME or GTK tabs are very slow
For the last two days any GNOME or GTK program that I run that has tabs (e.g.
gedit, nautilus, Iceweasel etc) have become very slow to open new tabs, switch
between tabs or close tabs. Nautilus and Iceweasel work with no slow down at
all as long as I don't open more than one tab (as both won't show the tab bar
if there is only one tab) but gedit is always slow as the tab bar is always
I tested if this was isolated to GTK or GNOME by using a qt program I have
installed with video4fuze which has no slow down when switching tabs (I can't
open or close them in that program).
I'm not sure what package upgrade caused this. I'm running Debian Wheezy amd64.
