One way is to set wordwrap properly.
A more useful way would be to upgrade to a 2.6.x kernel,
as the preempt / low-latency patches ostensibly provide
a significant performance (or rather perceived performance)
boost. I'm still playing with 2.6.x, and there's certainly the
occasional hiccup with it, much like kde 3.2 has some of
those challenging and unadvertised features up its sleeves.
I'm curious if developers typically work on 2.6 or 2.4 kernels.
PS. Note that this isn't a kernel list, so any subsequent problems you
have with using a 2.6 kernel are better discussed on a different list.
