Okay, now that my nameserver's are now working and gnome is now
responding better I discovered that what was happening had always
happened, but that the problem was exacerbated by the nameserver stuff.
Ever noticed when you're typing a message in the compose window of
Evolution that it will stutter every now and then for this a moment. It
isn't long (usually only three or four characters) before it resumes.
Turns out that a funky nameserver really highlights this stutter.
