Jumping in late in this thread, I've seen this too. I'm using Xfce and
can not find a reason for this. video is radeon 4350, too (or 4370?).
It seems like it's video related. With f15, opening a new tab in
firefox it took nearly no time and 'bam' tab was shown. Currently it
looks like one can track each element painted on the screen.

Is there a graphics benchmark to try out?
