Thanks... but it looks like Pango use was definitely disabled. (the env
var is set in ~/.bashrc). It still feels slower than before the recent
firefox update though.

I'm biting my tongue a bit, because FC5 has been a complete mess from my
point of view. Broken sound card, GTK/GNOME performance plummeting with
the introduction of Cairo, Evolution still crashing regularly when I quit
while using the "Empty trash folders on exit" option. I've been an RH user
since 1999, but I'm giving serious consideration to switching to another
desktop and another distro.

Anyway... thanks for the advice.
