I did not notice it in a standard installation, but on the ltsp clients.
Running impress presentations you will notice a huge difference on
animations speed and image loads between the clients and the server. 
That has been fixed on 2.4rc4:

The weird thing is that using 2.2 the problem does not appears, even if
theorically it exists, but I have spent a long time testing this for the
last weeks and I can assure you that with 2.2 the speed is the same (or
slightly better) than using 2.4, and you don't notice any difference on
running the presentation on the ltsp server and the client. With 2.3
there is a huge difference, just follow the same presentation at the
same time on the client and the server and you'll see how at the client
is really slooooow.

This only happens if the video memory of the client is lower than 32 mb
and you're not using the vesa driver. With a lot of video memory or
using the vesa driver, oo 2.3 works right.
