I too have noticed a huge slowdown in speed. For me everything is slow.
(I have updated from Sarge Xfree to Xorg and running a 2.6.17 kernel)
If you put exec <slow-application> in .xsession and then run startx is
it still slow?
If you are running a display manager you will need to disable it first.
You have not given much information about your environment, i.e are you
running gnome/kde/fvwm/icewm etc.
