Most mysterious.  On my computer (a standard Fedora Core 3 
installation), Ipe became unusably slow (it would take 5 seconds for the 
display to follow the cursor movement).  Perhaps I should take out Ipe's 
own rendering to bitmap and see what happens.  I'd encourage all Linux 
user's to comment out the following line in 
"src/ipecanvas/ipecanvas.cpp" and report whether Ipe slows down 
dramatically or whether it improves rendering without any problem:

That's not what I meant.  You filed bug #130, but the same problem had 
already been reported as bug #122 and bug #128.
