With some styles there is a little bit flickering. But I should not say slow.

Try the new and refreshing dotCURVE. It is fast, small and clean.
And it is packaged by the developer (me). Run to get it before everyone does.

Well, I forgot to say you may have a trouble with that machine, It's not
logical it runs so slow. Sometimes kde gets bloated (????), try to start a
session with a new user, and move away ~/.kde/share/config/sessions.

Yesterday was not my day :( Nobody impedes to make a 686 Debian version, or
compiling it myself.

To have all for 686 may be not result in great performance boost. But it is
logical you are going to win with optimized libc6/libm, xlibs, kdelibs and
may be other as libpng or freetype. This weekend xperf and apt-build are
going to work.

Ask buildd and mirrors if to have more work, space and bandwith is fine.
